Our mission

stretch

 

Our mission is to provide children with the best possible teachers: teachers who respect the child and can support each child's needs. teacher candidates will explore the necessary tools to foster the child's growth and development while providing "hands-on" experiences that will encourage the child to develop a lifelong love and enthusiasm for discovery and learning.

Our vision calls upon us to prepare leaders who affirm and promote the essential goodness, dignity and freedom of all human beings. The goal of this Montessori Teacher Education Program is to provide teacher candidates with a thorough understanding of The Secret of Childhood, to help them gain insights into the true nature of child development, to model the use of developmentally appropriate Montessori materials, and to demonstrate how respect for the child's "inner teacher" serves as the integrating principle for effective early childhood education.

Dr. Daniel Jutras is the Institute's Director who for the last 28 years has prepared over 2300 Montessori teachers and tutored Montessori Courses and Workshops in Toronto, Winnipeg, Québec City, USA, England, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Poland and Vietnam. Daniel Jutras has a Ph.D. in Education from Ottawa U., an AMI diploma (3-6+) from Perugia, Italy; his Instructor and mentor was the late Antonietta Paolini who worked with Dr. Maria Montessori for 22 years, and a St.Nicholas Montessori Advanced diploma (6-12) from England.

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

 

Aims of the course

stretch

 

Our aim is to provide teacher candidates with opportunities and resources to gain the necessary knowledge and practical experience to pursue a career as educated qualified Montessori teachers. The need for well-trained Montessori teachers continues to grow all over the planet. To be convinced is to consult ads on the Internet, local newspapers or magazines about worldwide Montessori careers.

Our aim is to:

  • Keep Montessori philosophy and respect for children central to its purpose.
  • Provide the teacher candidates with knowledge and practical skills that are relevant to the needs of the child.
  • Provide high quality education for future Montessori teachers as per the MACTE standards.

Course level

stretch

 

The Montessori Teacher Education Course prepares the adult to accompany and guide young children from 2½ through 6 years of age in a Montessori environment.

 

The course is designed for:

stretch

 
  • Individuals who are pursuing the field of Montessori Education with children between 2½ and 6 years of age.

  • Pre-school, E.C.E., Kindergarten and Primary teachers who wish to be familiarized with the Montessori Approach to Early Childhood Education.
  • Teachers who would like to join an existing Montessori school.
  • Teachers who would like to know the use of concrete Montessori materials for remedial work in graphic language and in mathematics.
  • Special Education teachers who need manipulative and concrete materials to encourage development of neuromuscular skills leading to abstract ideas.
  • For people who simply love children and care about their whole development.

The art of good teaching is not just preparing an appropriate environment for learning and discoveries nor just presenting the materials in order. Rather, it is to know the magic moment: the appropriate material to offer and the needs of the child to explore their next step. Montessori teachers are prepared to "Follow the child" and are acutely aware of each child interests and accomplishments.

"Our teachers thus penetrate the secret of childhood, and have a knowledge far superior to that of ordinary teacher who becomes acquainted only with the superficial facts of the children's lives.Maria Montessori
