Day 1: Montessori Theory Essentials

Day 1 will focus on the development of the child and the basics of the Montessori pedagogy, including the Four Planes of Development, the Absorbent Mind, prepared environment, freedom and discipline.

Day 2: Practical Elements to Assist in the Classroom

Day 2 will begin with how to build trust with the child, observation exercises, and ways to be responsive to the child rather than reactive. The second part of Day 2 will focus exclusively on the skills needed to support the lead teacher and the children, through break-out groups for the primary and elementary level. Also covered will be assistant duties in the classroom, transition activity ideas, and how to protect the guide’s lesson.
