Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services, Inc.

Overview

Catholic Charities (and its affiliates), an NCCRS member since May 1999, seek to create a community of caring among staff in all programs in order to alleviate human misery and promote a social order which enhances human development. The Caritas Training Center for Early Child Care and Education focuses on the Montessori Approach in offering a two-year integrated curriculum of child development concepts and their practical application in the Infant-6 years classrooms. Through a wide variety of activities and experiences, students cover practical life and sensorial education, mathematical qualitative thinking, language and literacy emergence, concepts and skills of science, social studies, art, music, and movement. Dr. Maria Montessori's method and philosophy of child development are compared with the findings of modern brain research and with the ideas of other Early Childhood theorists. Trainees develop knowledge and experience in the Montessori Approach which, far beyond the supervised internship, enriches classroom management, enhances lives, and aids in the development of effective problem-solving skills in themselves and their students.
