Toddlers are very special little human beings that require their own type of care. Too often, Montessori toddler settings are watered-down versions of the Montessori 3-6 classrooms. These are not appropriate for the toddler’s needs.

The MCSA Toddler Course is aimed at all adults working with toddlers, whether in a school or home setting. This series of eight 4-hour interactive workshops is designed to bring an awareness of the toddler’s specific needs and to assist the participants in providing developmentally appropriate practice.

It is important to note that this is not an accredited qualification, but a specialisation workshop series.

Course Structure & Support

The MCSA Toddler Course will initially only be delivered in Cape Town in August and September 2022.
