Child Study Training – July 2021
This course has already started. The next Child Study Training will begin January 2022.
Child Study is a Montessori-based approach to meeting the needs of all children, resolving difficulties early, and using a wide range of data to support student development. A commitment to serving children through Child Study has the power to change a school’s culture from deficit-based fault-finding to curiosity-based solution-finding. This 8-week online training prepares educators to implement the Child Study Protocol in their school.
Child Study Training includes readings, videos, written assignments, and eight live sessions. Live sessions will be held from 5:00-6:30pm ET on the following dates:
- July 28
- August 4
- August 11
- August 18
