VICTORIA MONTESSORI TEACHER TRAINING CENTER was established in 2007 to provide a two year Montessori teacher training program in Uganda for guiding children at the 3-6 year old level.  Montessori programs offer a child centered program with a mixed age group (3 year age span) where children can learn experientially, at their own pace, using a hands on approach to learning.  They do the “work” of building themselves to be peaceful, creative, cooperative, independent, life long learners.  The Montessori “children’s house” provides opportunity for freedom of choice and responsibility in a safe and respectful prepared environment.   Plans for training Montessori elementary teachers are also underway.
