    I recently came upon a job opening to teach in a montessori school where they will provide training first. im contemplating it as i have been searching for a job for a while and havent found anyhting yet. Im wondering if i could get some info on Montessori schools. for example, how does the pay compare to a regular public school teaching job? pros/cons? Thanks!

    I would also consider teaching in a Montessori school so long as Montessori training is provided. I considering applying to a Monterssori school in my area that is opening a new location at the end of August. I'm expecting the pay to be around $30K.

    My minor was ECE so some of my field experience was done in a Montessori school. IMO, it's really no different than any other child development center.

    I just applied to a Montessori school and the starting pay is only $30K which isn't much here. On top of that, they want YOU to pay for training (which they mentioned is MA degree level at a certified college). If they offered to pay for it, I would go for it though, because a job is a job. :D Good luck!

    Hi all!
    Salary in private Montessori is definitely less than public school salary. Though more and more public montessori schools are opening.

    It is a fulfilling and stimulating career choice and there are different ways to apply the training to life situations. The training itself is an amazing experience. Montessori is more of a philosophy than a dogma and also comprehensive in scope.

    Good luck!

    I am also interested in Montessori training! I am thinking about subbing in a Montessori preschool and hopefully getting some training, so I know what/how the teachers are teaching. I am very interested though.

    It depends upon the school. Regular public Montessori schools here pay the same as regular public schools. They're all on the same pay scale. Charter schools pay differently than the public schools in my area, so you'd really need to check with the school.
