The training of the teacher is something far more than learning ideas. It includes training of character.
It is a preparation of the spirit. -Dr. Maria Montessori
Our Montessori education programs are designed for people with busy lives. You are not committed to preset class times, or required to perform unnecessary “busy work.” Almost all of our students continue to work full-time while they acquire their Montessori teaching diploma. Our students can successfully complete their diploma program with one hour study time per day, five days per week.
Our Montessori teacher training program is very user-friendly and visually attractive. The courseware contains both the theory and the practical Montessori tools are introduced in illustrations and its presentations explained in detail. Manuals are also discussed in detail.
If you have researched other, Montessori Training Centers, you have already discovered that our quality and prices are unparalleled in the Montessori training industry.
IMTTI Kaligi Students after completing the course are well placed in reputed schools.
Parents today insist that their children’s, childcare environments provide positive, stimulative education as part of a balanced program. That is why Montessori-trained educators are in high demand worldwide. Our programs are recognized by Montessori schools everywhere, which are seeking well trained, professional Montessori educators. We have graduates from over fifty countries worldwide.
The maximum duration permitted to do the course is one year.
Students those who complete the course successfully will be trained on classroom teaching skills, interview techniques and will be registered to the KRM recruitment board. Based on the performance of the students, their placement will be confirmed.
If you can devote one hour a day, five days a week to our program, you can complete it comfortably within our outlined schedule.
No. This is not a compulsory requirement, however, we do highly recommend that you seek an internship, assistant, or volunteer position in a Montessori classroom setting while participating in the IMTTI Kaligi, Montessori teacher training program. This allows you to experience and put into immediate practice your written training. The vast majority of our students are already working in a Montessori
environment. As such, their current responsibilities far exceed that of a student teacher.
We do not feel it is necessary to require an internship from people currently employed in a Montessori environment. However, persons not familiar to the Montessori environment are recommended to undergo training with a Montessori House of Children, for at least one month. This can be done at a Montessori house near your neighborhood.
You can be provided an introduction letter from IMTTI Kaligi to be given to the Directress of the Montessori House, where you wish to undergo training. At the end of your training, you should submit an internship report to IMTTI Kaligi.
No. This course may be comfortably completed within 6 to 9 months, if proceeding at a consistent pace. Rushing you through the course would be jeopardizing the quality of the program.
You are required to spend a minimum of three months to study the course. For your benefit, and the benefit ofchildren, we will not compromise our standards of excellence.
All centers of higher learning have schedules that must be adhered to. Your personal tutor will consider extensions on an individual basis for students under extreme distress.
You will be assigned one primary evaluator and one co-evaluator. Your personal tutor will be the primary evaluator. This provides consistency, a balanced perspective, and allows you to establish a personal rapport. Your personal tutor will commit to your success by offering guidance and encour agement.
Our mandate is to provide professional, cost-effective Montessori training. If student satisfaction is a credible gauge of how well we are doing, we are delighted! Please see the student testimonials pages to know what our past students say about our programs.
We definitely feel that in order for a prospective teacher to be taken seriously, classroom experience is a necessary component to compliment our program. For students lacking Montessori classroom experience, we generally suggest that after they have completed approximately two thirds of our
program, it is time to approach a local school(s) and offer your services as a volunteer teacher.
This will provide them with valuable and credible practical experience.
It depends on where you live. The answer is yes in some areas, and no in others. It could also depend on whether you want to start off working as the teacher responsible for the classroom, or as a classroom assistant. Private schools are almost always much more flexible with their teacher’s educational requirements.
Yes. Like all Montessori Diplomas, ours is valid internationally. In fact, our students come from over fifty countries worldwide. Like a growing number of Montessori Training Centers, we are independent. Being independent provides us with the freedom to offer the highest quality program possible, without interference.
To affiliate ourselves with any of the older, more orthodox organizations would require us to make program compromises, which we will not consider.
