About AMS-Affiliated Programs

AMS-affiliated teacher education programs provide comprehensive courses of study that prepare adult learners to be highly qualified Montessori educators. While each TEP is unique, with its own academic schedule and tuition, all are rigorously designed based on AMS standards, with the goal of ensuring that you will receive the necessary education for entry into practice at your chosen level. Fully affiliated course levels have received or maintained AMS affiliation by meeting all AMS standards and requirements. Those at the Applicant Affiliate level have been reviewed and accepted by the Teacher Education Action Commission (TEAC), and are awaiting approval by the AMS Board of Directors, which grants full affiliation.

About the TEP

Montessori of Alameda Teacher Education Program’s Infant & Toddler, and Early Childhood Montessori Teaching Credential programs seek to inspire, instruct, and cultivate Montessori teachers. Montessori places an emphasis on a child’s holistic development as well as nurturing their academic curiosity. Similarly, our teacher education program focuses on the preparation and transformation of the whole teacher as well as on the importance of the prepared environment. The program instills in our adult learners a deep respect for children and sensitivity to their needs and different styles of learning.
