Course Overview

Maria Montessori was a truly remarkable woman, the first female doctor in Italy, she was centuries ahead of her time and continues to be an inspiration for women and children all over the world. Having developed her timeless approach to Early Years Education, she then bravely travelled around the world to demonstrate her wonderful techniques.

A scientist herself, her approach is at once scientific, structured, orderly, holistic, nurturing, gentle, activity centred, child orientated and remarkably effective.

Throughout this course programme, you can learn more about Montessori, approaches to providing a Montessori inspired learning environment and how to use her methods and techniques. Educationalists around the world area realising more and more that Montessori offers an unparalleled learning environment for young children.
