Montessori In The Home

Course Details

Stimulating toddlers and pre-school aged children at home is vital and is often the job of dedicated childminders. For this reason, Montessori Centre South Africa has developed a series of workshops designed to give childminders the awareness that they need in order to fully stimulate the children in their care.

The course is run over ten 4-hour workshops covering the following topics:

  • An Introduction to Montessori Philosophy
  • Child Development
  • Planning the Environment and Safety
  • Child Care and Nutrition
  • Activities of Everyday Living: Developing Independence
  • Learning through the Senses
  • Stimulation of Language
  • Stimulation of the Mathematical Mind
  • Learning About The World Around Us
  • Creativity

A training manual is provided that covers the workshop content in detail.

Attendees may be asked to prepare activities for each session (apart from the first session). This will encourage reflection on the course content as well as active learning.

Applicants should have a good command of spoken and written English.

The Montessori in the Home course taught me a lot. It is a great experience and it has left me with a lot of respect for children.

The content of the course was very delightful and I have learned a lot. I was used to the traditional way of learning, and I think that Montessori has shown how we can see children as their own beings in growing so that they can form themselves with the adult guiding, not taking centre stage.
