Description

The Montessori Assistant Toolkit-Infancy and Toddlerhood Edition is a targeted collection of seven lessons that gives a classroom assistant new to Montessori all the needed skills to support teachers and children in early childhood and early elementary Montessori classrooms (0-3 years old). For this edition, we partnered with Infant-Toddler Master Teacher Laura LeClair of Aurora Educational to bring you the highest quality content on this topic.

 

Each of the seven lessons consists of a series of topics that cover key concepts necessary to understand and work in a Montessori Classroom. They utilize innovative features, multimedia content, summary assessments, and hands-on assignments in a workbook. Participants work through the lessons at their own pace; however, we suggest they complete them and the follow-up exercises over a period of seven weeks (one per week) to maximize their understanding. This pace is also easy to fit into any schedule as it is not a significant impact on a person’s time.

 

In addition to the 7 lessons designed for classroom assistants, we throw in a bonus workshop for teachers titled Supporting Classroom Assistants.  It provides lead guides with tips and strategies for working more effectively with their classroom assistant. It is designed to provide the leader of a Montessori learning environment with the insights and skills needed to make the best use of their assistants and raise the performance of the whole classroom.

 

Though aimed at classroom assistants, this course is also ideal for any adult new to Montessori, including board members, volunteers, parents, and others needing an overview of a functioning of a Montessori classroom. For more detailed information on the contents of the course, sample content, and included bonus materials, please visit the Montessori Assistant Toolkit page.

 

If you are considering the Site License Package, it is an ADD on feature that is purchased in addition to the number of seats in excess of six that you need for your staff.  It includes group viewing rights, bonus administrator’s seat, group monitoring capability, and “flex” seats. For additional information about the Site License Package and whether it is right for your needs, please contact us by using the Contact Us form.
