During the course you will have to do a minimum 400 hours of classroom based training including lectures and supervised practice, and a minimum of 250 hours of observations of children from birth to three years.
Our training centre at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (The Hague) is one of only around fifty Montessori Training centres in the world which deliver the AMI Diploma, an internationally recognised qualification based on the authentic approach to Montessori education. The 0-3 course will be the first official internationally recognized AMI course in the Netherlands. Whilst the AMI Montessori Diploma primarily qualifies the holder to work with children in school using the Montessori approach, graduates also find employment working with socially disadvantaged children, family support and children with particular special learning needs.
