Maria Montessori Teacher Training Center
The mission of the MMTTC is to offer high quality teacher education courses that provide an in-depth study of Montessori’s concepts and philosophy of education, her unique psychological insights into the child and the ways in which they can be effectively implemented in the classroom.
The goal of the Primary Course (2 ½ – 6) is to create transformed adults who will be sensitive and effective practitioners and creators of a Montessori environment, empathetic advisors to parents and enthusiastic representatives of the Montessori method, informing the general public about Maria Montessori’s methodology and goal for human progress toward peaceful coexistence. In this manner we can best serve the needs of the child. To best transmit Dr. Montessori’s principles, we are guided by this quotation from Education and Peace:
We must develop the spiritual life of man and organize humanity for peace.
The goal of the Lower Elementary Course (6-9) is to create adults qualified to teach children in Montessori classrooms, provide advice and support to parents and inform the general public about Montessori education and its goal of social progress and peaceful co-existence. We wish to provide the child with best guides possible. Graduates of the program are qualified to hold a teaching position in a Montessori Elementary school (6-9 year old) classroom.
