Why Montessori?

Our Montessori concentration courses recognize the strength of Montessori education and the rigorous preparation of Montessori teachers.

Montessori teachers are in high demand worldwide. There are about 4,500 Montessori schools in the U.S., both public and private, and more than 20,000 worldwide. Hundreds of job postings for trained Montessori teachers go unfilled each year.

As part of the Association Montessori Internationale’s (AMI) Bold Goal we hope to increase AMI-trained teachers significantly over the next few years. The University of Hartford and Montessori Training Center Northeast ‘s Montessori education concentration programs will prepare more AMI teachers to work in current and anticipated new Montessori teacher positions.

Montessori teachers are committed to the development of the whole child and helping children and young people understand their place and contributions in our global community. Dr. Montessori saw education as more than simply passing on knowledge and skills but rather as a social reform movement leading to a better world for generations to come.
