Age of Montessori has prepared three 60 hour professional development/refresher courses for you:
- Child Development Course: consists of an in-depth study of the stages of development (featuring a wonderful chart Maria Montessori drew in her 1941 course in India, faithfully copied by her friend and student Dr. Elisabeth Caspari) and the sensitive periods as they relate to current brain research. Learn more about this course.
- Early Reading and Writing Course: designed to fill in some important gaps in your staff”s knowledge to successfully guide your children to develop their vocabulary and comprehend what they hear and read. Utilize the latest brain research and Montessori’s own concepts to read and write easily and well. Learn more about this course.
- Early Preparation of the Mathematical Mind: from the beginnings of the mathematical mind, we cover in depth the sequence of lessons that will take children from first knowledge of numeration through 10 all the way to memorization of the facts in the four operations. Learn more about this course.
