Who may do this course?

Parents: This course helps parents understand the natural laws of growth and self construction in a child. Thus as a parent, you can help the child to grow to his utmost potential , and not unwittingly hamper the path of nature and create unintended deviations in your child.
For those who want to work with children: This course is highly recommended for young people interested in helping small children. It is also of great value for future parenthood. Our students work for a teaching diploma examination and at the same time, they are helped to attain a higher standard of education themselves with the help of written and practical work. On completion of the course, one could find suitable jobs in Montessori environments.

This course is recommended to all experienced teachers of young children who wish to gain insight into the best way to individualize their teaching curriculum, so that children of mixed abilities may work at their own pace. Teachers should consider this course as an up-gradation, and could implement the Montessori methodology in the conventional schools.
"Discipline, the first result
of an order establishing itself
within, is the principal phenomenon
to be looked for as the 'external
sign' of an internal process that
has been initiated."

- Spontaneous Activity in Education
People wishing to help handicapped children: The course covers in detail the needs of the handicapped child. The entire course will benefit immensely anyone wishing to teach handicapped children and will enable such children to be integrated into the classrooms in preparation for life in the community.
Students wishing to start their own Montessori School: As well as giving all the benefits described above, the course includes a lesson on setting up a Montessori classroom or a Montessori School. Our team will give advice to any students who have successfully completed the course and who wish to start their own pre-school. We can advise on the location of premises/teachers/equipment, enrolling new pupils, etc.

Our student's qualifications range from senior secondary school to Post graduate level. This course is also suited for ladies, who want to teach their own siblings, if they don't want to send them to school up to 5 years of age. Also Heads of convents and reputed schools recommend our course. We have on our rolls, students from the families of Personnel of the three wings of the Armed Forces of India. Most of our students undergoing the course are currently serving in schools. Students come from a wide variety of cultures; backgrounds and age groups to attend the program. From students taking a gap year before entering university, to people in their twenties and thirties wishing to embark upon a career change to Montessori education; from parents with young or older children to grandparents interested in finding out about how the Montessori Method can help their grandchildren. Some already possess advanced qualifications such as first or higher degrees or are qualified nursery nurses; others have little in the way of formal qualifications but have much to contribute from personal experience either with their own children or from experience in the classroom. We welcome and have trained male as well as female students for pre school education.

"Our task is to show the
way to discipline.
Discipline is born when
the child concentrates
his attention on some
objects that attracts him and
provides him not only with a
useful exercise but with a control
of error."
