This Diploma in Montessori pedagogy is for those interested in working alongside children in a Montessori early years learning environment. The course provides students with the expertise, skills and professional approach needed to become a facilitator of Montessori education, acting as a key person in a Montessori classroom.
MCI recognises that a training in Montessori pedagogy requires a breadth of understanding and varied set of skills as well as specific attitudes to children and to on-going development. Taking students through a process which gives them a grounding in the historical context, philosophical approach and developmental understanding of the Montessori pedagogy, creates a firm foundation from which educators can practice. Study flexibly at your own pace on the virtual learning environment and with support from a dedicated tutor(s).
