" Whoever touches the life of the child touches the most sensitive point of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future."
Dr. Maria Montessori
WHO WE ARE
We are a Canadian based, non-profit society that offers Montessori Elementary and Early Childhood
These programs are designed for educators interested in implementing the Montessori approach to education at the Elementary level (ages 6-9 years and 9-12 years) in Canada and Early Childhood (ages 3-6) level in Shenzhen, China.
The elementary credential programs that are offered acknowledge the existing need and new opportunities for trained Montessori teachers in B.C., Canada evidenced by:
• more B.C. children entering public and private elementary schools with Montessori preschool experience than ever before;
• increased interest in personalized, self-paced learning that is interdisciplinary, integrates the fine arts, social and emotional learning, civic responsibility and a global perspective that includes environmental stewardship, in addition to 21st century learning strategies – all central to the Montessori method.
The Early Childhood (ages 3-6 years) teacher training programs offered in Shenzhen, China acknowledge an increased interest in Montessori in China. Early Childhood course content is offered in Mandarin at CAMSV’s Branch Campus in Shenzhen, China.
" We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. "
