NAMC has developed a comprehensive program format that is straightforward and manageable for our busy students.
You can complete this nine-month program from the comfort of your home and you will receive all the support and guidance you need from a knowledgeable, experienced Montessori teacher trainer.
NAMC includes everything you will need to successfully complete your diploma program. You will be well prepared for your teaching career with fourteen professionally developed, full-color Montessori manuals, blackline masters, online math videos, and checklists. This is a unique and beneficial feature of all of NAMC’s programs.
Commit as little as four hours per week to your studies, earn your Montessori 6–9 diploma in nine months, and start a rewarding and challenging career.
NAMC is thrilled to launch our new MyNAMC Learning Environment. Your Lower Elementary program has been enriched with many new and exciting online resources including short and informative videos to help you get started, valuable NAMC articles, photos, activities to supplement your learning, and an innovative study timeline to help you successfully manage the timely completion of your program. NAMC’s plan is to continually add resources to these online environments.
You are welcome to enroll in NAMC’s Lower Elementary (6 to 9 years) Diploma Program at any time. NAMC does not have predetermined start dates for our programs. Once you enroll, we schedule and send you your unique assignment due dates. The program is divided into three separate components. Each component is completed within a twelve-week period, making the program an approximate total of nine consecutive months (this includes shipping and handling time).
As a NAMC student, you will be assigned a personal Montessori tutor who you will work with directly throughout your program. NAMC’s tutors are experienced, knowledgeable Montessori classroom teachers who have been teaching the Montessori method to adults for years. Working full-time for NAMC, your tutor is always there to guide you through your studies. And you can connect with her any time — by email, Skype, or phone. In addition to providing you with continual support and guidance during your program and offering you valuable feedback on your assignments, your NAMC tutor is a great resource when you have questions about Montessori theory and practice, our curriculum and resources, the use of didactic materials, classroom management, communicating with parents, purchasing materials and furniture, organizing an open house, recording observations, preparing student assessments, and much more.
