YMCA's Montessori Training Program

Did you know that your helper can play an important role in your toddler or young child’s learning and development?

Thanks to Hong Kong’s YMCA, in partnership with the North American Montessori Center (NAMC), your helper can study the principles of the fun and interactive Montessori education method. She will gain a whole new skill set that she can put to use during playtime with your children, helping them to build excitement for learning through enjoyable games and sensory development.

Montessori Training Program for Domestic Helpers
The YMCA is pleased to host this unique Montessori teaching curriculum, which has been designed and recognized by NAMC. Tailor-made for domestic helpers, this special course allows them the flexibility to earn an internationally recognized diploma from home.

Helpers are offered different diploma programs, depending on the age of the children they care for: Infant/Toddler (0 to 3 years old) or Early Childhood (3 to 6 years old). The program is taught through self-study, videos, and assignments to be completed at home. A tutor is also assigned to each helper to give guidance throughout the course. If a helper completes the course within the 6 month period, she receives a diploma and is considered a graduate of the Montessori Teaching Program.

The YMCA of Hong Kong offers a wide variety of professional courses for domestic helpers.
Every Sunday, the 6th floor of the YMCA building in Tsim Sha Tsui bustles with domestic helpers seeking to gain new skills, ranging from computer skills, to beauty and massage, to healthcare and fitness.
