Give to Age of Montessori.
Age of Montessori provides online Professional Development and Certification courses for Montessori teachers as well as educates parents on early childhood education.
Our online courses, seminars and webinars are studied by parents and teachers all over the world. COVID-19 has changed the way we do things: our Summer Residency this year will be delivered VIRTUALLY for the first time.
Although we have been delivering blended programs for some time, we now find ourselves in the entrepreneurial position of having to do virtually what we have always done here in Montana every Summer face-to-face. Early Childhood and Elementary 1 and 2 residencies will be 100% virtual.
Ensuring that our students get the best we can deliver we have had to purchase video equipment: cameras, lights, tripods, hard drives. We have had to prepare and ship manuals to our students at a significant cost. We have had to build a virtual classroom in which our faculty can deliver the lessons. We have filmed the lessons we can ahead of time.
During the current pandemic we have increased our webinar production to provide timely answers and ideas to schools facing closure. We have dedicated our social media pages and our homepage to delivering resources for parents to both educate their children at home and maintain their connections with their children.
Ensuring that our Virtual Residency is successful, we need to purchase video production equipment: cameras, lights, tripods, hard drives and employ video professionals. We will need to prepare and ship manuals to our students which adds significantly to our Residency cost. We are in the process of creating a virtual classroom from which our faculty can deliver the lesson presentations.
Our faculty is currently working double time to film as many of the lessons as we can before the Residency.
Your donation ensures that Montessori teachers in Montana and beyond have access to world-class Montessori Teacher Training when they need it. Thank you for your continued support.
With a budget of approximately $47,200 to deliver this, EVERY donation made will make a huge difference.
MORE ABOUT US:
Our mission at AoM is to support teachers and parents in the educating and raising of children in modern times. Here in Montana teachers are often far away from quality training opportunities, so we created online courses that provide the depth of information they needed accessible to all.
Headquartered in Bozeman Montana since 2011, Age of Montessori was born from a mission: spread the life changing message and methods of Maria Montessori across the globe. Age of Montessori is committed to reaching as many families and schools as possible. In addition to offering Certification Courses accessible to individuals across the map the Age of Montessori website is a go-to resource for parents and teachers working with young children. Blogs and webinars written and presented by Montessori professionals deliver timely, on-point solutions for frustrated parents and teachers.
