Montessori teacher training starts today!

I am really excited that today is the first day of my Montessori teacher training course.  With a new baby due in a matter of weeks I felt it was not the right time to go for a full time course but instead to try out the famous Karen Tyler World Wide Montessori Online Teacher Training Course online for 12 months (normally 24 months but I chose the fast track option).  I hope that this course gives me enough information about Montessori teaching so that I can implement the techniques at home.  Then, in few years time I will go for the full time course for the 3-6 age range.

My aim is not to begin formal education with Freddy but to find things that we can do together that he will enjoy as well as benefit from, and I hope to try out most of the activities with him during the course of the programme.  I'm sure I will write about how it progresses!

  1. Congratulations and good luck on starting the course. I am currently in the course and I am doing the fast track too! I love Karen's albums and her cultural albums alone are worth their weight in gold! She is a wonderful lady and readily answers any questions she might have. It is awesome that you are taking this course, let me know if you need any information or questions.

  2. Thank you so much! I'm really looking forward to it. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions but for now I'm just trying to read the huge amount of information supplied.
