NAMC’s guiding philosophy is one of continuous improvement, and we fully embrace Dr. Montessori’s belief that childhood education must be progressive. This is why NAMC is dedicated to providing our students with comprehensive, innovative lifetime teaching resources. For more than 20 years, we have been researching and developing Montessori curriculum and support materials — always at a high standard and always considering our students’ best interests. As a result, NAMC is proud to be the world leader in the development of Montessori curriculum resources.
NAMC develops our curriculum resources with you in mind. We know that you want to learn all that you can about Montessori philosophy and methodology, that you are passionate about teaching, and that you are eager to work in the Montessori environment. We also know that you are busy and that you would rather be working with children than copying out activities. NAMC’s range of professionally developed curriculum resources designed specifically for each program means that you don’t have to.
Our Montessori manuals are beautifully designed, professionally written, full-color albums that provide you with the theory, methodology, and application of Montessori in an easy-to-use format. The basis of each of our manuals is the work of Dr. Montessori and authentic Montessori practices. We then enrich our programs with contemporary ideas and activities that complement the Montessori method and that are of proven benefit to a child's Montessori education. Each program includes a guide that provides you with a solid understanding of Montessori philosophy and methodology, childhood development, and practical applications related to teaching in a Montessori environment. And our curriculum manuals include a full-range of Montessori activities with step-by-step instructions, full material lists, and all the necessary background information you will need to confidently present to the children.
To further support your learning, NAMC has developed resources that complement our curriculum manuals. Each program includes its own set of curriculum support material provided to you on CD. Hundreds of pages of printable Nomenclature Cards, Mastery Checklists, math exercise sheets, charts, labels, material templates, and much more — all ready for you to use in your Montessori environment and all included with your program.
Created with our distance education students in mind, NAMC’s demonstration videos are a wonderful tool for learning more about Montessori presentations in the early childhood and lower elementary environments. Highly valued by NAMC students, our hours of professionally made, informative videos allow you to experience how Montessori teachers present activities and work with the Montessori materials. And the year of online access that is included with our programs gives you the opportunity to watch the videos whenever you want!
