During Montessori Practical Life a student of the course will learn to prepare a child for important everyday skills. The potential Directress will then be able to encourage and develop the cognitive development and fine motor skills of a child.
Montessori Sensorial Education exposes a Montessori trainee to the sensorial equipment used in this module, which will enable them to reach out to the child and lay a solid foundation for the child’s learning process by refining and developing their senses.
Montessori Language, Phonics & Grammar will facilitate teachers to understand that communication is the foundation for meaningful development of language concepts and skills. Students will learn language concepts that will enable them to impart knowledge and focus on the child’s four areas of language development; reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Through Montessori Mathematics students will gain an in-depth understanding of mathematical concepts such as arithmetic, geometry, statistics and calculus. Clear, precise and abstract ideas used for relaying these concepts to children will be taught.
