Introduction to the ECCED Certificate Course
This is an ideal child psychology course designed for pre-primary, nursery, kindergarten or Montessori teachers in Mumbai. With more and more play schools and pre-primary schools opening up in and around our localities, the need for trained Montessori teachers is growing in Mumbai. In a play school very small children come and to handle them and manage them is not easy. It’s a job of a specialist teacher. Managing and handling a child in a nursery is a very sensitive issue from the point of children’s safety to his/her social, psychological and emotional well being.
Why Doing an ECCED course is Important?
Untrained people handling the child can have a serious impact on the child’s mental and emotional well being. It may leave the child traumatised and scared for a long time. The child must be handled by professionals who have been trained to understand the psychology of the child and knows ways to ensure that the child feels safe, and is comfortable. Not only that, but the child should also feel happy to be there in play school. In a comfortable environment the child can learn, grow and develop the social skills, which will form the basis of his primary education and further studies.
Only a person who is trained under a professional and a child psychologist can create this kind of environment. Our course curriculum deals with these issues in detail and aims at preparing the right candidates for job in a play school, nurseries, kindergarten or a Montessori school.
We have a very good team of educationalist, developmental psychologists, special educators, clinical and counselling psychologist and other remedial teachers who give and excellent insight into how a child must be handled and dealt with in a play school.
