Programme Purpose

 

Students will learn the Pedagogical Principles that guide the Montessori Method. Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to get a deep understanding of the child development from 0 to 3, including different complementary approaches such us Emmi Pikler’s free movement theories or Elinor Goldschmied’s vision of playing area. 

We want to propose an online learning program to contribute, with concrete proposals, in order to improve the quality of the education provided in spaces of early childhood, such as Kindergarten, Montessori Moms, families or any other facilitator.
