The introductory course to Montessori education that we present is a week-long training, 12 hours of content and dedication. We will teach an introduction to Montessori Philosophy and a tour of the different working areas of Montessori pedagogy. We will do it through a theoretical exposition, illustrated with practical examples of some activity presentations, in the various areas.

The Montessori approach stands out among the pedagogies of active education or New school, for having been consolidated for more than a hundred years, since its bases have been validated by Neurosciences and have been successfully extended to non-school settings.

Although Dr Montessori began her work with children with disabilities and later focused on the 3- to 6-year-old level, she established guidelines to extend the method from birth to three years, as well as in primary school and adolescence.

This educational approach promotes the harmonious development of the motor, intellectual, emotional and social areas, from a personalised approach. It also emphasizes the role of the human being who collaborates with the balance of nature and promotes peace.
