Information Course Auditing Overview

The information course is for homeschoolers, parents, administrators, and anyone desiring to know more about the timeless insights of world renowned medical doctor and educator, Maria Montessori.  Some people take this course for personal growth because the rich information applies to the development of our own potential as adults as well as how they can most effectively nurture their children.

This course is designed to give you time to absorb the fullness of what Dr. Montessori herself discovered and taught. If we had to choose one word to describe Montessori it would be “respect” – respect for our children, ourselves and our environment.  And through this respect, we learn how to unlock the talents and gifts that are given to each one of us.

This course gives you the time and space to learn new skills, develop personal and professional relationships with your peers and instructors, to reflect on the depth and breadth of Montessori principles and concepts, and to unlock your own “inner” teacher.
