From The Dean’s Desk: June 13th 2013

“I received tons of extremely important and useful information that changed my views both as an educator and as a parent”.

The above comment was received from a student currently completing our Early Childhood course.   It is very encouraging for all of us at MTC to receive this positive feedback.

 

Here’s what’s currently happening at MTC:

  • Some of our courses are ending and new courses are starting.  Therefore, the summer is an exciting time for the MTC staff and faculty.
  • This month we look forward to welcoming Dr. Donald McKay, Professor Emeritus, ECE Ryerson University, who will be working with our Infant Toddler group.
  • The Early Childhood course oral examinations have taken place.  We are always very grateful to our qualified examiners who join us annually for the final assessment of students.
  • MTC’s 8-day Summer Assistants’ course begins on July 2, 2013.  This course is filling up rapidly, but there are still a few places available.
  • We look forward to working with our Elementary group in July as that group prepares for the end of year final assessments.   In particular, we always look forward to viewing and reviewing their original Cosmic Projects.
  • MTC continues to welcome applications for our Early Childhood Diploma course commencing September 7, 2013.   If you are interested, do, please, contact us as soon as possible.  The application process includes a personal interview which needs to be scheduled.
  • MTC’s Montessori for Dementia workshops continue to be very popular. The dates for the next 2-day workshop are September 9 and 10, 2013 at Christie Gardens Residential Home.  Do watch our website for dates of other upcoming Workshops.

Debbie Couture is pleased to accept enquiries and applications for all the MTC courses.

And finally…

  • We are pleased that the $100 gift to our Alumni for successful diploma course registrations links us to our graduates in a positive way.

Until next week…

From The Dean’s Desk: June 3rd 2013

“Maria Montessori  founder of the Montessori educational system believed, “The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”

Here’s what’s currently happening at MTC:

  • MTC is entering an exciting time with courses ending, courses beginning and plans for the coming year being finalized.
  • MTC continues to accept applications for our Early Childhood Diploma course commencing September 7, 2013.
  • MTC’s 8-day Summer Assistants’ course begins on July 2, 2013.  There are still a few places left on this very interesting introductory course.
  • MTC’s Montessori for Dementia workshops continue to be very popular. The dates for the next 2-day workshop are September 9 and 10, 2013 at Christie Gardens Residential Home.

Debbie Couture is pleased to accept enquiries and applications for all the MTC courses.  Contact us here.

And finally…

  • We are pleased that the $100 gift to our Alumni for successful diploma course registrations links us to our graduates in a positive way.
  • We are sad to say goodbye to the groups of students who’ve completed courses, but happy that these well qualified Montessorians will make a positive contribution to the future development of children.

Until next week…

A Focus on the Person and the Prepared Environment

Two Day Workshop

Location:    12 Bannockburn Ave. Toronto, ON  
Date :          June 29 & 30 2015
Time:           8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Cost:            $450 per person (includes all materials)  
 

About The Workshop

This two-day program focuses on Montessori Methods for Dementia™, an innovative method of working with older adults living with cognitive and/or physical impairments. Montessori Methods for Dementia™ is based on the educational philosophies of famed childhood educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. Dr. Cameron Camp, when he was the Research Scientist and Director of the Myers Research Institute, Cleveland, OH, discovered that Dr. Montessori’s philosophies and principles could be effectively adapted to dementia programming. Research has provided clear evidence of increased levels of engagement and participation in activities when Montessori approaches are implemented with persons with dementia. Participants in this workshop will learn about the basic principles of Montessori Programming, along with practical “hands on” opportunities to apply the techniques and consider how these activities could be adapted for their clients/programs/home. The first day of the program focuses on the facts (knowledge) and the second day focuses on putting the concepts into practice for specific clients, activities, and environments.

Objectives

By the end of this two-day program, the learner will be able to:

  • Link interests, skills & abilities of persons with dementia to Montessori goals and objectives.
  • Describe the Montessori Methods for Dementia™ model and explain why this is a useful technique for those with dementia.
  • Describe the Montessori philosophy as well as the basic Montessori principles.
  • Develop programming for individuals and groups based on the main Montessori classes of activities, as modified for dementia.
  • Create and present Montessori activities based on Montessori principles.
  • Assess current programming strategies and know how to modify some to be more Montessori in nature.
