Montessori Diploma Course

Taking the child seriously and including the child’s own world into education is one of the essential elements of every educational theory. The doctor and educationalist Maria Montessori (1870-1952) developed an educational theory that is directly geared towards the child and leaves scope for its individual development.


Nowadays, Montessori Education influences the educational and teaching practice in many nursery, primary, secondary modern, comprehensive and grammar schools in almost every country. Montessori Education, which has been put to the test and has proved itself for decades, respects the child’s personality.


This educational attitude characterises the work in Montessori institutions:


  • free play and free choice of work; individual ways of learning
  • individual speed of learning and individually designed steps of learning
  • individually adjusted number of repetitions and working time
  • free choice of working partners etc.
