In a Montessori setting it is not unheard of that 4-year-olds perform math operations with 4 digits. With fewer pupils in each class, and a greater opportunity to nurture children individually, the rewards of seeing how students develop – as a direct result of teacher guidance – can be very exciting.
The Montessori Method is a child-centered educational approach to education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, and the only child development theory that has a curriculum.
The mission of Fountainhead Montessori Adult Education is to provide a training course to those interested in pursuing an American Montessori Society (AMS) Early Childhood Credential, as well as those seeking a greater understanding of the Montessori philosophy.
Fountainhead Montessori Adult Education offers weekend and intensive courses in Montessori philosophy and curriculum in a classroom setting, as well as supervised field experience for student teachers in an approved practicum site.
Early Childhood Credentials obtained at FMAE are certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS) and the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE). College credits are issued by the Cal State system.
