BECOME A CERTIFIED MONTESSORI GUIDE

Montessori Teachers have chosen a truly rewarding and fulfilling career. The child is free to explore subjects in more depth and proceed at his or her own pace. The Montessori teacher is the child’s guide and support as they explore, learn, and develop their inner potential. A Montessori teacher is a generalist, comfortable with knowledge in all subjects, and is ready to serve the child in their development.

CERTIFY YOUR TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAM

Grow the Montessori community in your country by starting a Teacher Education Program (TEP) with MIA. 

MIA encourages all Teacher Education Programs to be MACTE accredited or to be in the process of acquiring accreditation. MIA is a proud affiliate of MACTE and the process for certification by MIA follows MACTE guidelines.
