Montessori Teacher Training

Montessori Teacher Training

The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) oversees Montessori teacher training at affiliated institutions on four continents.

 

AMI training is offered at three different levels:

  • Assistants to Infancy (infant-toddler, ages 0-3)
  • Casa dei Bambini (primary, ages 3-6)
  • Elementary (ages 6-12)

Each course includes developmental psychology, Montessori theory, and practical, hands-on classroom training, as well as observation and practice teaching under training center guidance in approved, AMI-staffed Montessori classrooms.

 

AMI training courses last a minimum of one academic year and are full-time courses of study. Some AMI courses are offered over a period of two or three consecutive summers, with interim work.

 

A bachelor's degree is required for admission to U.S. courses, but some exceptions are made based upon the applicant's background and goals. AMI courses qualify for graduate credit in education at selected colleges and universities; details are available from each training center.

Happy Holidays from NAMTA!

Thank you for your patience and support during this transition to new locations for our office and our store.

We will be spending the next two weeks finalizing a new system for our store and catching up on memberships. The store will now be managed by Shopify, an online e-commerce system. It will go live and be ready for orders by January 7th.

The NAMTA staff will resume filling the orders at that time. We hope you find the new system easy to use and efficient. Please let us know if you have any difficulty.

In the meantime, we are thrilled to have the program for Seattle/Tacoma ready to announce. Please review our flier announcing this timely and important conference. We will begin registration at Montessori-namta.org on January 11th.

Best wishes as we celebrate the New Year.

The NAMTA Board and Staff
