Course description

Learn how to teach children with the Montessori Methodology in Sydney.

The Montessori Methodology is one of the most worldwide recognised education methods.
Dr. Maria Montessori designed this child-centred approach based on scientific observation of children from birth to adulthood. Since then, her vision of childhood and children’s natural learning has acquired international acclaim with over 100 years of success.

This course will help you to understand the bases of the Montessori Methodology in a functional and significant way so as to apply it at home or in schools.

Additionally, we will get familiar with the term “slow parenting” and how to educate and raise children in a natural, creative and slow-paced environment.

Ideal for
  • Parents who wish to inspire their children towards a lifelong love of learning, by following their natural developmental trajectory.
  • Tutors who would like to learn more about the method and how to apply it in their class
