The Montessori 6–9 curriculum maximizes exploration, creativity, and independent learning. The world of the child is full of movement, and we prepare the environment with beautiful materials and ample opportunity to connect with nature. This approach facilitates growth and fosters peace while keeping up with the busy and active bodies and brains of young children.

The NAMC Lower Elementary Diploma Program prepares Montessori educators with a rich, diverse curriculum to encourage and inspire young students at every turn. To teach according to the child’s needs makes learning much more meaningful and relevant to the child. When we follow the child, teaching becomes a gift and not a chore since it is readily accepted, internalized, and mastered.
NAMC’s Lower Elementary Diploma Program centers on these ideals, focusing on Montessori philosophy and methodology as it relates to the developmental and social needs of students in the 6–9 age range. NAMC’s Montessori training provides you with the knowledge and resources you need to engage and motivate students in the Montessori lower elementary environment.
