Get Started

It is a basic training focused on the educational needs of children between 6 and 12 years of age. Some tools will be obtained to guide children during their stage of primary education under Montessori pedagogy.

At this stage, children continue to be the protagonists of their learning, but their capacity for abstraction and interest in culture increase.

This course offers key information to enable a change in current education. The renewed pedagogical approach offered by the Montessori method is the common thread that will allow us to understand the elements that we can use to start the transformation of any elementary classroom.

The theoretical bases of Montessori pedagogy will be disclosed, as well as examples of activities from the various curricular areas that are worked in the Montessori classroom for boys and girls from 6 to 12 years old, considering that they are the protagonists of the learning.

Montessori Education is based on observations of the child’s real and spontaneous nature. Therefore, Observation is the basis of all classroom work and the constant guide to our behaviour.

The objective of Education is not a mere acquisition of knowledge, but rather that the child develops all his physical, intellectual and emotional potentialities so that he can finally achieve full and healthy adult independence.
Therefore, personal and cognitive autonomy and competency learning will be enhanced thanks to all the findings of Dr Montessori, which are also reflected in an improvement in academic results.

From a psychological point of view, there is a significant change in the child’s personality from the age of 6. Knowledge is transmitted more easily when there is enthusiasm for learning. A second aspect of education at this age stage is the way in which the child explores the field of morality, discerning between good and bad. As the child becomes more knowledgeable about morality, he wants to apply his own value judgment and make decisions for himself.

In this period we also observe in the child the need to relate to other children, in these social activities children organise themselves and naturally adapt different roles and practice collaborative work.


“The secret of a good education is to look at the child’s intelligence as fertile soil in which the maximum number of seeds must be planted in order for them to grow under the heat of their brand new imagination.”

Maria Montessori
