Professional Development Workshops

We offer an Advanced Montessori Seminar (four half days) each Summer (typically end of July, early August) for teachers currently working in the classroom.

Each September, GCCME offers an Introductory to Montessori Method and Materials Workshop Series. This series of workshops is designed for teaching assistants, parents, and others who are interested in learning more about Montessori early childhood programs. The next course will begin September 2013.

We are happy to offer customizable workshops to staff members as a group, on-site at your school. Please contact us for further information.

Bringing Montessori Principles into Your Home

What is the Montessori Philosophy? What makes a home Montessori? And how can I use Montessori principles in my home?  In this 3 hour workshop, we will discuss ways to create a home environment that will help your child develop independence and a strong sense of self.  An overview of the Montessori Philosophy will also be discussed. Focus will primarily be on ages 0 – 6. Participants will receive a Resource Folder and will have the option to join an online Montessori Parenting Support Group.
