Who We Are
The Jewish Montessori Training Center at Yeshivat Netivot was created to offer the skills and techniques of Jewish Montessori education to a broad community of teachers from across the United States. The Training Center provides teacher trainees with a strong grounding in Jewish Montessori philosophy, curriculum, and methodology, based on twenty years of experience as a flagship school of the Jewish Montessori movement. Trainees will leave the program with an understanding of all aspects of Jewish Montessori education, including Jewish Studies materials, lesson planning, benchmarks, classroom management, record-keeping, and cross-curricular integration.
