  • During this time the Adult Learner has the opportunity to bring together the theory                             and practice in such a way that responds to the needs of the children.

The Adult Learner is responsible for securing her/his own Practicum Site (Montessori School)                 and must be approved in advance by CMTEP.

The duration of the Practicum Phase is from September to June, Monday - Friday, for a minimum of 3 hours each day, 5 days per week.  Exact dates will be dependent on that particular school's start date and end date for that school year. 



Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are able to create more flexibility in our program, enabling us to reach out to people in more remote areas.

Currently, we are able to offer a teacher training program fully accredited through MACTE with a globally-recognized ECE credential from AMS.

Online instruction, blended with a face-to-face Residency where the Montessori materials will be presented, coupled with a 10 month Practicum at your school site, completes the process.
