Teacher Education

Montessori teachers design the classroom’s environment as well as incorporate specific materials that match each child’s interest and abilities. Everything is sized for the child and the teacher serves as a guide to offer the child stimulation through the work in the classroom.

Montessori teachers must be well prepared. They need to have a deep understanding of human design, learning environment development, and how learning takes place. They need excellent communication skills and need to be committed to reflection and inquiry. Montessori teachers support their children as wise guardians who see themselves as questioners and explorers.
