ASSISTANT TRAINING WORKSHOP
“An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live.”
Maria Montessori, Education and Peace
Most teachers and guides working with the child under three find themselves working alongside at least one, and up to four assistants (depending on the age of the children and size of the class.) We hire those adults who are excited and engaged, and willing to learn, but are often not trained specifically for the age of the children we are serving.
Radicle Beginnings will provide your school/community with a thorough and engaging workshop for your assistants on basic Montessori principles, how to engage (and disengage) with the child in a respectful and purposeful way, how to observe and how to best assist the teacher/guide.
This workshop can vary in length of time, from 1.5 hours to a full day, and anything in between. Radicle Beginnings is happy to accommodate your school's needs.
