CISM Foundation for Montessori Education  


Porta Nuova




Ten months in Italy offers students an experience of historic, artistic and educational interest, as well as experience in the human dimension of Italian culture.  Likewise, students of different nationalities have the opportunity of cultural and professional exchange which can provide a valuable stimulus for their work. This kind of exposure to other cultures fits perfectly with the Montessori principle of creating "citizens of the world", a concept as valid for elementary teachers as for elementary children.

The Bergamo Course provides the students with an excellent and intensive preparation for undertaking a "new education" for children aged six to twelve, with emphasis on the understanding of the entire cycle of the elementary school.
