Our mission



Our mission with the Assistant Teacher Workshop, is to offer an overview of the Montessori approach of Education and the practical ways it can be well implemented in the Montessori environment.

The goal of the Montessori Assistant Workshop is to provide the candidate with a good understanding of The Secret of Childhood, to give them insights into the nature of child development, to model the use of developmentally chosen materials, and to demonstrate how respect for the child's "inner teacher" serves as the integrating principle for effective Montessori early childhood education.

"The teacher's mission has for its aim something constant and exact, bearing in mind the words, "He/she must grow while I diminish"      Maria Montessori
