Job shadowing or internship in a Montessori Kindergarten

Published: 26.11.2019

Our organization, thanks to many years of experience, has selected some kindergartens that are combining two innovative methods, which allows our participants to experiment a unique experience in the sector.
In these kindergartens, the children are followed according to the Montessori pedagogy model merged with the approaches of the outdoor kindergarten. Nature and creativity become the main tracks of enrichment and learning. The games are made by the children themselves, with recycled material or with what they find in the surroundings.

Studying in nature is possible ... and it is also wonderful !!! Montessori had said that her pedagogy in nature works much better !!!
