This Montessori Assistant Training from 0 to 3 and from 3 to 6 years old, includes the main Montessori theoretical foundations, without forgetting the importance of the essential emotional and relational elements to achieve excellence in daily educational practice.

Montessori Education is a pedagogical proposal with a deep scientific basis and wide international recognition for its innovative profile that helps children in their holistic development of mind, body and emotions.

Being a scientific method based on the systematic observation of the real nature of children, it is adapted to the specific needs of each stage of development of the person.

Dr. Maria Montessori noted the great importance of the first three years of life and the need to offer the child in this stage a true "life help" as a renewing element of our society.

International Montessori Institute (IMI) imparts the principles and pedagogical practice of Montessori Education, including other complementary approaches such as the Emmi Pikler practices in the area of ​​movement and those of Elinor Goldschmied in the field of the game.

From IMI we want to propose an innovative online training to reconcile the desire to train with family and work life. New technologies now allow us to enjoy this flexible format while maintaining a high level of quality.

The objective is to contribute, with concrete proposals, to improve the quality of education that is provided in the spaces for early childhood, be these Kindergartens, Day Mothers, families or any other.
