During the first half of the 20th century, Dr. María Montessori developed an educational method based on the scientific observation of children: their different phases of development throughout their lives, their potentialities, their interests and their capacities.
These training courses of up to 360 hours offer the theoretical foundations of Montessori Education from birth to twelve years of age. They contemplate the development of personal abilities, among which the capacity of observation stands out, so that the adult procure the necessary care and promotes the self-construction and the adaptation of the children.
It also integrates elements of Pikler and Goldschmied’s contributions to facilitate motor skills and establish a positive relationship with the child, without hindering their independence. Between the ages of 0 and 3, the child conquers key skills such as movement and oral language, which he consolidates and perfects between the ages of 3 and 6, since from birth and during the first years of life, he establishes the basis of his personality. The general knowledge of the different areas of work corresponding to both levels, allows an understanding of how to respond, in a practical way, to the need for order and sensory experiences, without leaving aside movement and language.
All course contents are available 24 hours a day on the online campus. In addition, the student will receive didactic material at home.
In the online campus you will have access to forums where you can ask questions, private chat to get in touch with the trainers and a computer support team.
The modules will be opened as the course progresses, in each one there will be several webinars or live videoconferences with the trainers.
A personal tool to be developed during each practical module, in which knowledge acquired from each and every material and activity is recorded.
The course has fulfilled all my expectations, I have been able to integrate the basics of Montessori philosophy, in the stage 0-3 and 3-6, the tutor has been of great support, webinars and the resolution of doubts, as well as administrative level. For me everything is great!
I already knew the Montessori philosophy but this course has opened my mind and now I will be trained as a Montessori guide because it is the way of life and education that corresponds more to my personality.
Current scientific research continues to validate this educational method on a daily basis as a set of elements that help children in their holistic development of mind, body and emotions.
The scientific and humanistic approach of Montessori Education gives equal importance to cognitive, motor, social and emotional development and continues to confirm its validity from different disciplines, making it an excellent educational option for the most important stages of human development. IMI proposes these innovative trainings, completely online, in order to reconcile family life and work with the desire to be trained. New technologies allow us to take advantage of this flexible format, maintaining a high level of quality.
Our trainers have been carefully chosen for their extensive international experience, both in private and public schools, with the aim of transmitting all the richness of the Montessori Method in different social spheres.
