Montessori Summer Institute

July 5-18, 2015
Registration Deadline: June 1st, 2015

Summer 2015 - July 5-18, 2015

The Montessori Summer Institute is a unique professional growth opportunity for teachers of children ages three to nine years.

This intensive two-week enrichment program demonstrates how to use the resources of the child's own culture and environment for meaningful, ideal growth and development.

Hawai‘i, with its unique natural environment and rich cultural heritage, provides a wonderful model for place based and culturally appropriate practice, focusing on using resources in the child's world for meaningful hands-on experience.

Additionally, participants motivated towards an outreach experience are provided support in planning an outreach of their choice or qualify to join one of Chaminade's ongoing outreach programs.

The Montessori Summer Institute is offered by Chaminade University in collaboration with Star of the Sea Early Learning Center Peace Institute.

Education elective college credit or CEU's are available. Chaminade enrolled students may qualify for partial scholarship funding.
