An inside look at Apple Academy: Infant/Toddler Training

Apple Montessori’s own Apple Academy is a continuing education program provided to educators. Apple Academy is a full-fledged, practical training and seminar program held several times per year covering a variety of topics such as:

  • Curriculum: Expands levels of expertise through engaging exercises and demonstrations by applying concepts to real-world experience
  • Character Development: Development of personal skills and virtues, interpersonal skills, and global citizenship
  • Emergency Preparedness: Invaluable skills for prevention, what to do in an emergency and how to handle post-emergency situations
  • Teacher Preparation: Prioritizing and organizing to ensure a successful year

Each week, we invite specialized professionals to visit our schools to work one-on-one with team members to enhance their expertise through direct observation and demonstrations.

Apple Academy recently hosted an infant/toddler training session for our staff. We played a game in which team members had to match developmental milestones to a child’s age (2 months to 2 years). They also matched milestones to their proper categories like social/emotional, language/communication, cognitive, and movement/gross motor.

In the second half of the training, our staff paired up and took turns being the teacher and an infant or toddler while demonstrating Montessori lessons. Your baby is in good hands at Apple! Read more.
