Elementary (6-12) Orientation
Receive a Full AMI 6-12 Orientation Certificate
The AMI Orientation Course gives a detailed overview of Montessori Education with concentration on the development of the 6 to 12-year old child. This 60-hour long course is a solid foundation and much needed orientation for new assistants who want to better understand Montessori in order to provide a meaningful contribution to the Elementary environment.
This course also serves as a refresher for experienced assistants who can benefit from visualizing the big picture, enhance their observation skills and identify areas to better support a trained teacher. This course is also useful for parents, grandparents, school administrators and childcare professionals from other fields who would like to have a better understanding of the Montessori approach to early elementary education.
The course format offers lecture presentations, readings, discussions and various activities. In order to obtain the AMI Orientation Certificate, participants are required to maintain 90% attendance, complete 40 hours independent online learning, complete nine hours of observation and submit three short essays (500 words each).
