Graduate Testimonial

My journey in becoming a Montessori teacher has been an exciting and encouraging experience. I am so grateful to the faculty for their level of excellence in teaching the required curriculum. They were extremely supportive and helpful. I was able to experience the day-to-day activities of a Montessori school environment working with children, ages 2 ½ through 6, under the supervision of an experienced Montessori teacher. The Montessori Early Childhood course was very informative and thorough and I am very happy with my new vocation.
