Did You Know?
Last summer (2019) MINT hosted the Montessori Core Principles pilot!
One of our Montessori Core Principles Students said,
"I am in awe of the depth of what was covered. My knowledge, passion and love of Montessori has been expanded. . . I commend the pioneers of the course for recognizing a need, sharing a collaborative vision, and for being courageous enough to take the risks to do what is necessary to meet the needs of the growing Montessori community that is desperate for knowledge. I'm honored to have had the opportunity to be part of history - AMI's first Montessori Principles Course."
