Our Diploma Program-Instruction!

Posted on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 in Uncategorized

Our Ministry (Wa Yesu Ministries) is self-sustainable because of our three income generating activities. Our NGO is our income generating enterprise (Zikomo Yesu Enterprises). In order to continue to provide services to the children in our school and in the community, we have three income generating activities that allow us to generate Malawi Kwacha for Malawian Kids. We offer a diploma in Montessori Early Childhood Education together with our American accredited college, Montessori Training Center in California,  montessoritrainingcenter.net   Students must take course instruction and practice their skills within a Montessori classroom. Here are some amazing pictures of the teachers in the afternoon course instruction(340 hours- 9 courses)  They are an encouragement to me!!! They are an inspiration to me!!!!!  To all the past and present diploma students I send you a big kiss and hug! See you soon! Love, maribeth

Big smiles when assignments are being completed! The diploma course is inspiring, but students work very hard to complete their many assignments, projects, and written and demonstration exams.  Our students truly enjoy partner work and small group work. Lots of learning takes place! And at the end of the program, they are ready to teach! I am proud of you all!
