This classroom assistant course was created after our faculty received requests from Montessori schools around the country needing more training for their classroom assistants. Just look at these practical course topics!
The Assistant’s Course is a practical approach to learning the philosophy and Montessori way of working in the classroom and school.
Adult learners spend four weeks on their own schedule discovering how to truly be a Montessori professional. Through concise readings, online forums, short videos and assigned activities, they learn their role and the expectations of the job.
The course includes instruction on essential Montessori concepts such as observation, the inner teacher, the three-period lesson, care of the environment and the four major avenues as well as stages of development, sensitive periods and normalization.
In their studies, students discover how to build relationships and trust with the children while gaining practical strategies in classroom dynamics, including when and how to intervene, re-direct and resolve conflict.
Sample assignments include taking a Montessori walk and going on treasure hunts for classroom items, policies and procedures. The Assistant’s Course is a joyous exploration with a real-world result!
