Modern Montessori International Teacher Training Centre (India)

“The real preparation for education is the study of one’s self. The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of spirit.” Dr. Maria Montessori.

The Modern Montessori International (MMI) Group, a global educational organization, specializing in the Montessori Method of early childhood education has grown to encompass more than 40 centers worldwide.

The MMI staff has been working dedicatedly and diligently in this field to promote an internationally designed education in the country. The Montessori system is fascinating purely because it is more than 100 year old system, but it is still relevant in this age.

The Teacher Training programme for Diploma in Montessori Method of Education, conducted by MMI Group is designed for parents, teachers, aspiring teachers or any individual who is associated with the early childhood development. The course focuses to enhance the skill set required for better parenting, teaching and to be a contributing member of the society.

The concept and philosophy of education, with reference to the current breed of students, has changed altogether. Today’s judgmental generation doesn’t come with an empty mind waiting to be filled with the old-fashioned teachers.

With the onset of a new century came the challenges of finding a new horizon in the sphere of education and training. The present system of Indian Education & Training needs to keep pace with the overflowing demand for quality education by doing away with stereo-typed curriculum and unimpressive methodologies. The professional approach has to be at par with the best of the world.

With the bigger objective on course, the role of a teacher has changed from an authoritarian to a friend, a guide, a manager, a facilitator and scientific observer simultaneously.

MMI is established with the objective of imparting high-end quality education to produce world-class teachers with skills and extraordinary capabilities to accomplish the objective entrusted to them. The training grooms the prospective teachers as per the current prevailing standards, which develops and elevates the personality to such an extent that our teachers will have a cutting edge among others.

The programmes offered by MMI, its delivery structure and teaching methodology is governed by the academic council consisting of experienced and internationally renowned academicians. Our course judiciously combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience which provides the exquisite skills that distinguishes the best from the rest.

The institution does not believe in producing just diploma holders but teachers of substance with a comprehensive development of their personality to teach and groom the children of future and building a much better and stronger Brand India.
