Infant-Toddler Teacher Certification
*Age of Montessori is an Applicant in Good Standing with the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education status for the Infant-Toddler Course. Applicant in Good Standing status in no way determines the outcome of the accreditation decision by MACTE.
Every child is different. As teachers we often need to reach out to find the information or skills you need to best serve each individual child. Our professional development courses are 100% online to allow you to choose when you study.
Normalization in the Early Childhood Classroom
If you feel like you are in a constant state of reactive management in your classroom, it is very likely that the children are not reaching the state of Normalization. These qualities of Normalization reveal themselves when we prepare the environment and provide freedom of choice. No teacher “makes” the child work. Children love the work that corresponds to their internal development, and it is our job to provide that environment. Enjoy more calm in your classroom when you cultivate an environment for Normalization!
