How do I earn my Montessori Certificate?
At our center we offer two teacher training program levels including infant-toddler (birth to three years) and early childhood (three years to six years). Each program includes an academic cycle in which core and foundational courses are provided by experienced instructors. Classes may be held during the week or on weekends, depending on the program cycle a student chooses to register for.
Following the completion of at least 90% of the course load, adult learners move on to complete one academic year of internship in an approved Montessori setting, for the age-level they are training in. During this phase, students also work towards completing course assignments, observations, and exams.
Students who successfully fulfill all of the program requirements including practicum hours, coursework and observations are then recommended by the Institute for Montessori certification from our affiliate agency, the American Montessori Society.
Enrollment begins 6 months prior to the academic phase . At this time we do not offer mid-phase admissions.
Further details about our attendance requirements can be found in our student handbook.
