    I love how the adult teacher training program was designed to be like a Montessori program in itself. For instance, the lessons were designed to be in manageable chunks to help you gain confidence with each step. There was repetition, mastery, and then new material introduced, just like the approach you would be using in the Montessori classroom. The design of the program (distance learning) was also Montessori-like, in that it was flexible, it suited my learning style, and had clear expectations. I found that I could easily fit this program into my schedule, adapt as needed when “life came up,” but still achieve the same goal at the end.

    The additional resources, such as the blacklines and videos, were invaluable. So worth the money. I was able to put the blacklines and instruction received from the videos to immediate use. The videos were particularly helpful when I got to the Math manual. Reading all the fine details of how to explain simple and complex mathematical concepts can be difficult to wade through, but, the videos were so engaging and helped you immediately “get it.”

    I feel NAMC is not only a wonderful educational resource for achieving the Montessori diploma, but very professional! I have had several of my teaching staff receive their education with this facility and all have been very delighted. I highly recommend NAMC to any individual; in fact, they are the ONLY one I recommend!

    Thank you for the wonderful Preschool/Kindergarten training program. This is a professionally organized program. The training provides practical guidance for conducting Montessori teaching as a scientific approach that leads to true natural development in children. It presents comprehensive technology for implementing this true natural Montessori teaching to effectively control the environment, not the child. All the manuals and the classroom guide are so enriched with useful information and are updated with the latest scientific discoveries. I would highly recommend this program to everyone, and want to enroll myself in the next program level.

    My tutor was very professional, cooperative and positive in her feedback. Thanks to her too, for all her time, support, and confidence in me.

    It was a great experience…words can never describe the training and its benefits...a total success.

    I couldn't be happier about the entire program. The manuals are beautifully done, clear, informative, and easy to understand and digest. To my mind, the materials represent a well-balanced approach to Montessori education. I have been especially impressed with the comprehensive Language Arts program created by NAMC. This program could be a model for schools everywhere.

    In every way, NAMC has met and exceeded my expectations--in its professionalism, its commitment to its students, and its approach to the materials.

    I really enjoyed working through the material and found it very informative and in-depth (I even learned a few things that I have forgotten over the years, especially in the Math assignment!) I think once you see these programs applied in a Montessori school, it will all fall 100% into place, and you will be able to refer back to the manuals and blackline masters CD. I am very excited about this new career that I am embracing, and it would not have been possible without this great experience I had with NAMC.

    As for the feedback, it’s been truly wonderful. My tutor responded to every query or question I had within a day’s time, and her help and guidance made a world of difference. Even though I am halfway around the world from NAMC, it really felt as if I was just around the corner! My tutor’s feedback was always very professional and helpful and if I had any uncertainties, they were clarified immediately. Needless to say, the support was amazing and I could have not hoped for a better teacher, thank you very much!

    I was a bit scared to go back to studying after so many years of working, but NAMC made the whole experience an absolute joy and I am very grateful for this wonderful experience I had. Thank you very much!

    I completed my course and received my Preschool/Kindergarten diploma. I learned so much, and feel it was true value for money. Having the DVDs on hand is so helpful when I want to review a presentation - I definitely recommend them!

    Within one month of receiving my diploma, I was offered an assistant teaching position at a Montessori school, and now 4 months later, I have been promoted to Directress. I am very excited. NAMC definitely prepared me for success.

    You have renewed my faith in continuing education and certification! The course materials are well written and beautifully illustrated, while the examples and lesson plans are easily applicable to any Montessori classroom. My tutor’s response was prompt, and she was very supportive of my desire to learn and provide the most complete answers that I could. The feedback I received on all of my assignments was not only timely, it was positive and concise. NAMC's professionalism is second to none! They should feel honored by the responsibility they have taken to become an invaluable resource for the outstanding Montessori programs we have in our country! I truly feel prepared to fulfill my position as directress at Children’s House Montessori.

    I really feel like I was being taken care of, and that someone really cared about my education. I have learned so much and was already offered a lead position for next year! I want to thank NAMC for their affordable, flexible, well put together Montessori distance education programs for teachers. I found everything I needed in my NAMC manuals, detailed emails with instructions, reminders, and the NAMC website. Everything from day one was smooth sailing – NAMC could not have made it any easier. My correspondence was always answered within a day or two, with quick, courteous, and knowledgeable responses. I really enjoyed the one-on-one tutor program. I always received very detailed and positive feedback from my NAMC tutor. I was extremely pleased with the program! If it were not for this program I may have never been able to get my Montessori 3–6 certification. NAMC was the only training program within my price range, and also the only program I could fit into my busy schedule as a full-time Montessori Assistant Teacher. The information in the program is just as well put together and in-depth as any other Montessori college. All the teachers at my school told me how much of a difference they could see as I went on through the year. I felt different as well — so much more confidence in myself and in my ability to work with children. The tutoring included with the program is so incredible. I have nothing but fabulous things to say about NAMC. Thank you again!

    I have taken many graduate level classes throughout my adult life and this program is the very best I have ever experienced! The manuals are beautiful, enjoyable to read, and to the point. They are invaluable and I know that I will read and re-read them over and over to perfect my skills. Congratulations on developing such a fantastic program. My tutor was the most wonderful tutor/evaluator. She was very helpful, positive, and encouraging, and she helped me feel confident in my learning. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of this program and am now even more passionate about being a Montessori teacher. Acquiring my certification with NAMC has truly been a wonderful experience. Thank you very much!

    I would like to say how pleased I am with your program! I was certified through your program and started my own thriving Montessori school! I refer all of my staff to become certified through you because of your beautiful manuals and convenient courses. I am a working mother of four small children and it would have been impossible for me to become Montessori certified if it weren't for your program! Thank you for giving everyone a chance to pursue their dreams.

    My interest in the Montessori method began two years ago when I started working as an ESL teacher in one of the Children's Houses in Milan, Italy. Encouraged by my head teacher, I decided to learn more about the Montessori approach. I am happy to have chosen the NAMC 3–6 diploma program as I am now well prepared to work as a Montessori teacher. NAMC’s program is challenging and thought provoking. It has given me a very sound foundation in Montessori education. I would like to thank my tutor for her professional feedback and encouragement during the course.

    I found NAMC’s Preschool/Kindergarten (3-6) diploma program to be outstanding. Both its structure and content are very well articulated and relevant for real-life situations that, as a teacher, I face almost every day when communicating with and guiding young children. As children are our future society, their success will partially depend on their everyday learning experiences. NAMC’s program offers tools for teachers to guide children in a natural and beautiful manner. I would recommend this program to all of my colleagues, teachers, and friends.

    All three assignment components were thought provoking, covered the material and concepts introduced in the manuals thoroughly, and were a pleasure to complete. Overall, my experience with the program was outstanding. The staff at NAMC was courteous, professional, and quick to respond to any questions/concerns that arose during my training. The cost of the program and materials was extremely reasonable. The training manuals reflected the beauty, organization, and expertise one would expect from a Montessori program. Thank you, NAMC for providing a high quality, challenging, distance learning opportunity for a future Montessori teacher!
