Montessori Teacher Training

The course provides a two-year part time training course for those wishing to work with children between the ages of 2½ to 6 years. It runs two evenings each week term time only and is accredited by MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education), an international body based in the U.S.A. it is the only Montessori qualification in the U.K. to be accredited in this way, offering graduates greater flexibility if choosing to work overseas. The course  also benefits from Open University credit rating and with successful completion can lead to the award of 120 CATS points. These can be used as advanced credit towards a degree. The Office for Standards in Education (OfSTED) also recognises the course as a Level 4 full and relevant qualification giving qualified status for those wishing to work with this age group.

I’ve come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child’s life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal …

In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated and a child humanized or de-humanized.
