ECCE with Montessori
The Early Childhood Care and Education Level 6 Major Award (ECCE with Montessori) will provide the skills, knowledge and competence that will enable learners to develop a career as a Montessori Teacher for children whose age range is between 3 – 6 years.
The aim is to provide learners with a level of competence that will enable them to work as highly skilled professionals in this field. The Montessori Teaching course trains you to educate children in a way that gives them the best possible foundation for life.
The key principles of Siolta are planted within the programme and the learners are taken on a journey that both embraces and compliments the themes of Aistear and the philosophy of Maria Montessori.
