Infant and Toddler Teacher Education Program
“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six.”
Dr. Maria Montessori
The first three years of life serve as a critical foundation for development. Cambridge Montessori Institute’s Infant and Toddler teacher education program provides comprehensive learning in Montessori philosophy and practice, child development, pedagogy, environmental design, program leadership, personal growth and development and observation to give teachers the knowledge, skills and confidence they will need to support infants, toddlers, and their families in a prepared classroom environment.
