We are offering a new Montessori certification program for the Infant and Toddler (0 to 3 years) level.
In order to better meet adult learners’ needs, we are offering a blended instruction combining On-line instruction with hands-on In-residence seminars throughout the year leading to certification in Montessori Early Childhood accredited by Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education and in full affiliation with the American Montessori Society.
The program comprises On-line instruction that allows you to study at your convenience and In-resident instruction that focuses on hands-on experience for working on practical skills necessary in the classroom.
ASCMC is an Applicant for Accreditation for its Infant and Toddler Montessori teacher education certification course level with the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE).

This course covers child development from prenatal to three years according to Dr. Maria Montessori, in addition to examining the perspectives of major contemporary theorists. Prenatal development and childbirth are examined, followed by the study of young child’s development in such areas as cognitive, emotional, nutritional, neurological, psychological, physiologica, physical, and social.
This course offers a general overview of Dr. Montessori’s principles and ideas as they relate to the child from birth to three. We explore how Montessori viewed the child, and how she helped define a new importance to the child’s place in society.
Scientific analysis of how to nurture and assist the unfolding of the human personality is explained in terms of its implementation in the following areas: care of physical and psychological needs; daily routines as curriculum; strategies for assistance; interaction techniques with children; and positive communication. Students gain an understanding of the qualities defining the Montessori professional.
This course is designed to provide a basic understanding of the importance of the environment and its effect on the development of the child. It offers fundamental skills in aesthetics and designing a specific environment to meet the needs of the infant and toddler in terms of the child’s sensitive periods (language, movement, development of the senses, independence, order, etc.) through activities, space, and materials. In addition, aspects of design regulated by legislation are covered, including: ages and age groupings; numbers and ratios; and safety.
This course provides strategies to manage an effective program based on historical Montessori foundations. An overview is given of administrative issues such as budgets, fees, funding, legislation, personnel, scheduling, and standards. In addition, we cover specific concerns to all-day care, including human needs and requirements for children, families, and staff, and provide students with the skills for defining and developing Montessori childcare.
This course stresses the importance of the relationship of the infant and toddler program with the child’s family. Students are taught the necessary skills of creating and developing mutual cooperation and support with the families. The course of study assists the students in developing dialogue skills and the connection between family and center in terms of stages of parenthood child rearing practices; community resources; teacher parent conferences; parent involvement; parent education; and health and nutrition.
Observation skills are crucial to the success of an infant and toddler classroom. Students learn techniques of observation through actual observation in a functioning Montessori child care infant and toddler program. Skills for developmental assessment and techniques for record keeping are taught and practiced under staff supervision.
The development of the professional Montessori teacher begins with the development of the self. Montessori qualities in terms of the adult are explored and discussed, as are standards of professionalism and ethical behavior. Students gain insight and understanding of how to nurture their own spiritual and intellectual development.
An investigation of the elements that are integral to a quality program designed to meet the needs of a developing young child, developing the theoretical understanding and practical skills.
This course provides the importance of nutrition for young children in order to nurture their physical needs to grow into healthy children.
Since diversity and interdependence are important tenets of the Montessori philosophy and practice, we place great importance on this project. A year-long project consisting of research of a culture group of the student's choice is required. It should provide the student with experience to explore, plan, develop, implement and evaluate a unit of study that will enrich the environment and spark an interest in children to study how other people live on our planet. The project will be shared with the students who are completing the practicum.
The online conference will provide the adult learners opportunities to connect with colleagues and instructors. They may bring questions and reflections, and interact with the cohort group. It will assist them to build confidence as they create the community as a whole during the practicum phase.
The Practicum Phase provides the student with a supervised teaching/ learning experience and a period of observation, internalization and further study to bring together the theory and practice of Montessori education. The environment is prepared with materials and modes of activities that respond to the developmental and varied needs and interests of the specific age group from birth to age three.
This course provides an overview of Philosophy for ages from 2 ½ to 6 years old, Montessori rationale and basic methodology for the materials in the curriculum areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, and Language.
