Birth to Six: Infancy & Primary Dual Certification

For those who seek a study of the complete progression of the child from birth to age six, MISD offers a program that combines the Assistants to Infancy (birth-3) training with the Primary (3-6) training. You will emerge from this program fully qualified to work both in Montessori infant/toddler communities, and in Primary environments.

If you are looking for the fullest and most complete understanding of early childhood and Montessori pedagogy available, this combined Montessori teacher training course is for you.
