Grazia Silvana! Montessori Assistants to Infancy
NAMTA's purpose is to maintain Montessori traditions, and at the same time, to be on the cutting edge of innovative education. Accordingly, we provide the medium for study, interpretation, and improvement of Montessori education.
There are three basic levels of Montessori training: infant/toddler (birth to age 3), primary (ages 3 to 6), and elementary (ages 6 to 12). Middle school (ages 12 to 15) positions are generally filled by Montessori elementary-trained teachers with academic strengths in several subject areas. Montessori also integrates specially-abled or challenged children.
Classroom teaching positions usually conform to the training levels above, although the elementary level is generally divided into two age groupings: 6-9 and 9-12.
