Montessori Educators

Montessori education is focused on the idea that children have an inherent capacity to learn and that, when assisted by an appropriate environment and educator, they are guided by their developmental needs in order to reach their full potential.

A Montessori classroom usually consists of a qualified Montessori teacher assisted by a Montessori assistant. In general, Montessori teachers have a standard teacher certification as well as extra Montessori specific training. The teacher is a guide or facilitator whose job is to help the young child in his or her cycle of self-development. They are mainly an observer, discreetly and closely observing the growth of each child, identifying and understanding the needs of each child.

The instructor creates a bond between the child and the prepared environment, introducing the child to every piece of equipment when he or she is ready in a precise, transparent and attractive manner. The most important aspect of a Montessori teacher training is the love and appreciation she has for a child's complete being.

The task of the Montessori assistant is to help the teacher and encourage peace and order in the classroom. They admire and appreciate the individuality of each child while continuously fostering and encouraging a love of learning. The assistant is a keen educator who is informed about developmentally acceptable actions and activities and respects the individual needs and desires of children.

Montessori Programs

Main characteristics in all important aspect of a Montessori teacher training programs:

Prepared Adult – informed about the developmental stage of infants, young adults, and people with whom they communicate.

A Prepared Environment – Creative, well-ordered and multi-age groupings, providing activities that relate to the unique needs of the age group. The built setting occupies both internal and external areas.

In these conditions, children, young adults and adults consider what is important for their individual growth while gaining real life knowledge of what it means to lead a full life in the company of others; of what it means to exercise freedom of choice while still taking responsibility for the effect of their decisions on the well-being of the society in which they live and the world in which they work.
