Q. Are there any short-term AMI Montessori courses that are available which can provide me with a clearer understanding of the Philosophy? As a parent, such a course would be of great benefit in helping me understand my child's developmental needs better.
Ans: Two-week AMI Assistants Courses are often conducted by the AMI trainers and Auxiliary Trainers. These short courses are intended to provide a broad overview of the 3-6 age group and are helpful to parents. Participants are awarded a certificate from AMI at the end of the course. Although not a teacher training qualification the course would help the certificate holder to assist in a Montessori classroom.health prose
Q. Does Montessori Education work only in the 3-6 age group?
Ans: Over the course of her life, Dr. Montessori evolved a complete framework of education centred around the individual's developmental needs from birth to twenty four years of age. It so happens that the Montessori programme for the 3-6 age group is the most popular, and therefore offered by more schools around the world than the programme for any other age group.

Dr. Montessori looked at the growing individual in the following four age groups: 0-6, 6-12, 12-18 and 18-24.health prose

Q. I am thinking of enrolling my three year-old child in a Montessori School. How do children who go to a Montessori school adjust to the pressures of regular mainstream school once they complete at the age of six? Do they find it difficult to adjust?
Ans: The aim of the Montessori 3-6 programme is not to prepare children for mainstream school. The greater aim is to assist with the natural development of children and to help them to develop to their fullest potential. If supported, children draw tremendous benefit from the Montessori programme. They develop good communication skills, write creatively and have good reading comprehension, understand many mathematical concepts, have good social skills, cope with changes with self-confidence and often try to seek solutions to their own problems. As a result they cope very well in mainstream schools.health prose
