Montessori education is an educational proposal with wide international recognition. Dr Montessori developed an educational method along the first half of a twentieth century based on the scientific observation of children: the four planes of development, their potential, their interest and their skills.

Current scientific research still validates this pedagogical method as a set of elements that help children in their holistic development: mind, body and emotions.

Montessori Method can be implemented as a whole or gradually introduced in traditional school environments, enriching everyday educational practice. Any environment where children are present can be improved under this pedagogical view.

Students will learn the Pedagogical Principles that guide the Montessori Method. Upon successfully completing this module, students will be able to get a deep understanding of the child development from 6 to 12.

International Montessori Institute (IMI) provides the principles and the pedagogical practice of Montessori education and the current scientific evidence, to contribute with concrete proposals to improve the quality of the education.
