Educate yourself to your full potential with Montessori!

Montessori education is a method that relies on children deciding what they want to do, taking part in hand-on tasks and collaborating. Children in a Montessori classroom are helped to make creative decision about their education. It is a very different style of childcare training from traditional schooling. Montessori courses teach all about this area.

If you have an interest in education, a Montessori course can be a fantastic way to learn. With short, dedicated courses, Montessori often does not need the amount of time and attention that students would normally need to give a full Education degree course.

What is Montessori?

The history of Montessori education dates back over 100 years. In 1907, Dr. Maria Montessori opened a nursery based on freedom for young children to learn in their own way. Teachers help to guide students through their education. They offer help and support, but many decisions are made by the children themselves. The students work both alone and in groups. The focus on co-operative lead education means students can progress when
they are ready to move on, rather than rushing through a traditional syllabus. This means that graduates are fully developed people, as well as knowledgeable ones.

The Montessori system is designed to mirror human development, so that the students will grow as people while receiving an education. Age groups are divided from 0-6, 6-12, 12-18 and 18-24. Each separate stage has different objectives, to help the students tackles the particular stages of life. A 2006 study in Science Magazine determined that a good Montessori education can be superior to traditional styles of teaching.

Montessori schools are spread around the world, particularly across Europe and the United States and there are many Montessori courses available. Though educational facilities exist for older students, Montessori schools tend to be mainly for younger pupils. Classrooms are designed to be used by students – with all furniture a suitable size. Teachers oversee the learning process and help guide students without controlling the environment. This is unlike traditional schooling methods where students have very little input into what happens in their day-to- day education.

How can I learn more?

A course in Montessori education is the best way to learn more about this exciting style of teaching. The courses do not replace a traditional BA or Bed undergraduate degree, so they cannot be used in a traditional school system. They are highly informative however, and will help any aspiring Montessori teacher to understand the system. A Montessori course is essentially a qualification in Early Years education.

With a choice between full and part-time courses to suit, you can learn about a Montessori education in the way that suits you best. Courses will examine all import aspects of both a Montessori education and Early Years Development as a wider subject. If you do not already have an undergraduate degree, gaining these certification is a good step towards eligibility for a course at University.

There are also courses that focus on specific elements, such as special needs in young learners. If you would like to study only specific elements of education – such as Maths and Language – exclusively, there are appropriate courses.

A course in Montessori education will help you learn about one of the most creative styles of education. It can be used in addition to an existing Education degree, or as a stepping stone towards university. With both full and part time courses available, you can learn at your own speed, and fit the course around your personal schedule. If you are not sure whether or not you would like to study education full-time, a course in Montessori
education is a god way to find out.
