The Canadian Montessori Teacher Education Institute
Greetings!
Good news ! Montessori training in the Greater Montréal!
Further to your inquiry about our prospective Montessori Teacher Education Diploma
Course (Early Childhood), I am pleased to send you this informative package regarding
the program in the Greater Montreal in collaboration with two generous school
principals: Jeany Tsitsos from Heart, Mind and Soul Montessori Academy, and Khistian
Lalchan from West Island Montessori Academy.
This Montessori Teacher Education Course provides you with this very special
opportunity to gain the necessary knowledge, competence, confidence, and practical
skills to pursue a career as a “top” authentic Montessori Teacher. The Early Childhood
Teacher Education Diploma Course is a 10 month intense part-time program consisting
of a minimum of 203 hours of theoretical and very practical “hands-on” subjects as well
as 400 hours of Internship which includes 200 hours of supervised teaching practice. The
teaching practice component is conducted in a Montessori school.
From September 2016 to June 2017
Alternating Friday (6:30 – 10:00 PM) and Saturday (9:00 AM - 5:00 PM) from
September 2016 to June 2017 at both Montessori schools.

As Director of the Institute, it is my privilege to be one of your Master teachers ; I
will share your training hours with Sasha Malashenko and Julie Lyras, both Master
teachers.
The preparation of a Montessori Teacher requires far more than just learning how to
prepare the learning environment and how to present activities to children. This is the
technical part. It also requires each adult to become inspired by the Montessori Spirit!
I personally received this inspiration from my own Instructor and Mentor in Italy; with
my colleagues, I look forward to sharing it with you; we hope to pass this Spirit to you!
I hope that this formative experience the Montessori Teacher Education Diploma
Course will open the doors to the child’s world for you and the Montessori world as
well.
Welcome aboard!

Aims of the Education Course (Early Childhood)
Our aim is to provide teacher candidates with opportunities and resources to gain the necessary
knowledge and practical experience to pursue a career as authentic qualified Montessori teachers. The
Institute is recognised for its high standards in Teacher Education. The demand for “Top class”
Montessori teachers is continually growing. For the past 14 years in the Greater Toronto area, 94 % of
our graduates have found employment in the many Montessori schools of the GTA and in Montreal in
2015, which sets a beautiful record for the Montréal territory.
The Montessori Diploma courses are designed to:
- Keep Montessori philosophy and respect for the children and their needs central to its purpose;
- Provide an in-depth study of the Montessori constructivist concept of education;
- Provide an optimal preparation in the practical personalized ways in which this concept can
beimplemented effectively in early childhood ;
- Provide high quality education for future Montessori teachers using Montessori’s approach,
materials and curriculum.
-
Internship and Teaching Practice
Practical application in a Montessori learning environment under the guidance of a certified
Montessori teacher is required as an integral part of the Education Courses. It consists of an
Internship of 400 hours that includes 200 clock hours minimum of supervised teaching practice in
Early Childhood Education where the teacher candidate observes, assists and participates to the
dynamic process of education of the host Montessori school. Independent study, projects, material
making and research constitute the remaining hours.
The Faculty
- Director and Master Teacher: Dr. Daniel Jutras:
- Instructors in training: Sasha Malashenko and Julie
The Child
In her vision, wisdom and analytical research, Dr. Maria Montessori saw life as a continuum,
each stage evolving from the preceding one and preparing for the next. The Children’s
House lays the foundation of the inquiring mind of the 2½ to 5 year old interested in "What"
and "Where". This is the age of the inside unheard demand: “Help me to do it by myself” or the
experimenting hands: “I can do it”. However, the mind of the older child (6 to 9) functions in a
new way: "Why", "How" and "When" are the consuming questions and interests. The chil d
n o w s e e k s a n d n e e d s a n introduction to and an overview of just about everything. His/her
motto is: “The more I undertake, the more I learn”. This is the Age for Cosmic Education
and the search for new ideas and solutions in a personal, meaningful and cooperative way.
Course Outline
Montessori’s vision is that her approach of education provides “a help for life” for the child. Learning
to implement this fundamental principle is an essential part of the Montessori Diploma courses.

development, and the philosophical, scientific and historical foundations of the Montessori approach
and its modernity and to model the use of developmentally appropriate materials in:
