Seton Montessori Institute’s Paraprofessional Course provides a broad foundation in Montessori philosophy, educational techniques and classroom practice, geared for those who are involved with young children at home or professionally. Many successful Montessori administrators, board members, classroom assistants and parents have increased their understanding and strengthened their effectiveness through the course. For others, the course has been a steppingstone in deciding to pursue full teaching certification.
The Paraprofessional Course covers all the basics of the Montessori approach. Offered four times each year, in April, August (the August course also features an Administrator’s Track, including special sessions each day and an additional full day designed to meet the needs of Montessori administrators and board members), and September. The Paraprofessional Course can also be presented at your location, by special arrangement.
The course is four days in length, with a fifth day for those registered for the Administrators Track. Students are asked for full attendance and the completion of an assignment in order to receive a certificate.
