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.

Welcome back and thank you for you patience as we have been transitioning to new locations, beginning new work with new staff, and refreshing our processes.

Our online store and archives have successfully moved into a new space where all of our publications and media, both for sale and for research via the archives, are housed in one large office/warehouse. Along with the refreshed processes and efficiency this new space brings, we will be implementing new ordering and payment systems for the NAMTA store and updating other member services. We are now filling back orders and will be ready to accept new orders by December 11th.

Our operations are now headquartered in Seattle and are being managed by NAMTA’s longtime president Jacquie Maughan. Please feel free to contact us at staff@montessori-namta.org or call the Seattle office at 206-919-6349.

For additional news and updates, please see the note from the NAMTA officers.

Finally, be sure to mark your calendars and plan to attend our conference in Seattle/Tacoma on April 4-7, 2019. This conference will not only explore the most current approaches and uses of technology but will also inspire and enrich our understanding of maintaining our balance with the forces that keep us rooted and connected to humanity through the power of story, the natural world, and creativity. Check back soon for program and registration information.
