Infant and Toddler Teacher Education Programme

Early Chilhood Teacher Education Programme


HKMRDA has been actively promoting Montessori philosophy and education to the Chinese community.  Several hundreds of seminars were held during these years introducing the Montessori approach of education.  We have left no stone unturned in the localization of Montessori educational method in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Since 2012, HKMRDA has organized teacher education programmes in Hong Kong. This is a great opportunity to raise Hong Kong early childhood education’s educational status to an international standard. We will continue our mission by nurturing more parents and teachers for the contribution to the society.

HKMRDA Early Childhood Teacher course prepares adult learners for working with children aged two and one half to six years old. 320 Academic hours are required. Instruction is at Infinity Children's School (Kowloon Tong), Hong Kong.
