PROGRAMMES FOR THE NEW ZEALAND MONTESSORI COMMUNITY
We created The Institute for Montessori Education (TIME) ten years ago to prepare Montessori primary teachers in New Zealand. These courses were held in Christchurch and Wellington. We are also the principal tutors for an online masters degree: M.Ed. Montessori Integrative Learning. Primary (elementary) teacher preparation is part of this online work that is offered worldwide.
The in-person TIME course is now part of the Endicott graduate program and is completed online. We provide teaching manuals as well as videos on how to present the materials. But the course is more than Montessori 6-12 teacher preparation. The program addresses an evolution of Montessori insights as we explore the roots of the approach and provide a broad context for understanding Montessori principles.
