CMTC - Montessori Teacher Training
Diploma Course Details
Since 1983 the Calcutta Montessori
Training Centre has been conducting --
a continuous and uninterrupted Pre-Primary Montessori
Course in Kolkata.
The Pre-Primary Montessori Diploma
course is of 09 months duration and
qualifies teachers to teach children between
2 to 6 years of age.
The Course is practical based and
The syllabus has been formulated by the
Teacher Training Society a Government
Registered Body. The syllabus is such that
without disturbing the existing educational
framework of our existing schools into which
all school going children will eventually be
absorbed, the formative years under our
trained teachers would give the children an
added self-confidence in their intellectual
ability based on a firm emotional,
psychological and social foundation. The
syllabus is also 'practical' oriented, all
subjects eventually blending into a
composite whole and our students are taught
how to apply their knowledge in a practical
manner. The teaching being child-centric,
total focus is laid in the understanding of
each child's psychology when guiding the
child. They also go through 01 month's
internship in a good Montessori school.
Our teachers are trained to guide the
children in the classroom and are always
ready to assist and direct. Their purpose is
to stimulate the child's enthusiasm for
learning and to guide it without interfering
with the child's natural desire to teach
himself and become independent. Each child
works through his individual cycle of
activities and learns to truly understand
according to his own unique needs and
The training of our teachers is also such
that, keeping the nucleus intact, that is,
the concept of the psychological, emotional
and intellectual development of the child,
the syllabus can be made pragmatically
viable in our urban and rural communities
working within their respective cultural,
social, lingual and economic framework.
This has been proved in practice. The
teachers trained by us are in a position to
scientifically guide the development of each
child, either is isolation or within a
group, by constructively translating their
knowledge in accordance with each child's
economic background and psychological needs.
