2021-2022 MEIPN Assistant Training Schedule

We are in the process of moving this course online and will post an updated schedule when we know it is ready.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

MEIPN’s Assistant Teacher Training Program is designed for Infant-Toddler, Early Childhood, and Elementary classroom assistants and support staff. This course is specifically designed to deepen their understanding of Montessori methodology including terminology, philosophy, and the biography of Maria Montessori. Additionally, assistants will acquire tools and strategies for effective classroom interactions and management. Through a series of exercises, discussions, and lectures, participants will complete the course with a solid introduction to Montessori Grace and Courtesy, how to prepare the classroom environment, classroom management and communication with their lead teachers.  Participants are eligible for 11 STARS hours.
