TEACHER CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS

The Mission of the Virginia Center for Montessori Studies (VCMS) is to prepare adults pursuing a Montessori certification to facilitate in children a sense of self-confidence that encourages inquisitiveness, initiative, independence, and a joy in learning. We foster the development of caring, respectful individuals, who will have a positive influence on the world.

Virginia Center for Montessori Studies (VCMS) is founded upon Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy of human development and education.  The Infant Toddler (birth - 3 years) and Early Childhood (ages 2 1/2 - 6 years) Certification Programs prepares adult learners as Montessori professionals.  Our programs are affiliated with the American Montessori Society (AMS).

 

The next two-year Early Childhood program cycle is scheduled for June 2016 through June 2018.  The program can be completed in one year at an accelerated pace.  The Infant Toddler Program is a one year program held every other year, with the next being offered June 2017 through June 2018.  Please contact VCMS for details.

 

We believe that Montessori Adult Education:

·         Provides the highest quality application of Montessori philosophy

·         Encourages an exceptionally high level of intellectual excellence

·         Facilitates exploration and growth

·         Provides opportunities to learn through a practical, discover-oriented approach

·         Maintains the integrity and dignity of the adult learner

 

We look forward to being part of your Montessori journey.
