Why get my Montessori certificate with PMI?
Because the demand for Montessori educators is at an all-time high!
The Montessori method of education is rapidly expanding, with schools popping up all over the U.S. and internationally.
Claudia Bautista discovered The Prepared Montessorian and immediately wanted to begin her Montessori training. It took her 1 year and 2 months to complete, and she was able to find work 2 WEEKS later.
“Teaching in a Montessori environment offers opportunities to connect with the children, help them reach their potential, and guide them toward meaningful growth. The most important attribute of a Montessori educator is the love and respect we hold for each child's total being. It can be an incredibly rewarding career. ”
— Claudia Bautista, Children's House Lead Guide
