AMI Montessori 0-3 Orientation Certificate

The AMI Montessori 0-3 Orientation course

Course Description

The Association Montessori Internationale Assistants to Infancy Course is intended as an introduction to the philosophy and practice of the Montessori approach for the child under the age of three. This course is helpful for administrators, classroom assistants, nannies, doulas, carers and childcare professionals and anyone interested in human development in the critical first years of life. It is an invaluable insight into the child for parents, parents-to-be and grandparents. It is an ideal foundation for those who may be interested in taking the AMI Assistants to Infancy training (studying pregnancy, birth and the child until the age of three).

Course content includes reading and discussion on Montessori pedagogy such as freedom and self-discipline, the importance of the prepared environment, the role of the adult and order. Toileting, movement and language are also studied as they contribute to a child’s independent development.
