This is a training program I'm considering, since it's only 7 months, online, and affordable. I don't plan to go into Montessori teaching specifically, but there are aspects of Montessori that I really like, and would like to learn more about. Has anyone here been through their training? I wonder if it's worth it. They are not associated with and AMI or MCI, but... "we are registered with the Private Career Training Institutions Agency of British Columbia (PCTIA). We are also registered with the National Association of Career Colleges (NACC) and the Canadian Association of Young Children (CAYC) and we are members of the International Montessori Council (IMC), the Pacific Northwest Montessori Association (PNMA), the British Columbia Montessori Association (BCMA), and the International Association of Montessori Educators (IAME)" Suggestions? It does include some great materials. Sarah ..and on a side note, I'm not sure if Montessori training is right for me at all.. I don't believe in requiring children to use materials in a specific way. I think that is the only disagreement I have with the approach, though.
