In Brief

The London Montessori Centre is launching a new Infant Toddler Diploma, beginning in September. The London Montessori Centre Diploma, which can be studied either as a full or part-time course, can also be done as a correspondence course.

In addition to Montessori nursery practice, students will learn about the administrative and managerial procedures necessary for setting up their own nursery.

The syllabus will include child development, care and health; creative studies and communications; the child in society and children's special needs; early years environment; language acquisition and school management.
