For over forty-five years, the Montessori Center for Teacher Education (San Diego) has been educating Montessori teachers for Early Childhood, Elementary I, Elementary I – II and, most recently, Elementary II.   As the program grew it became known for its academic rigor, thoroughness, and authentic approach to Montessori education. We are grateful for our years of success and for all the teachers and adult learners who believed in and participated in our program. We are especially grateful to our many graduates who carry on the work of Montessori in today’s world. Over the years, the program has remained current with Montessori practices and changes in the educational realm. The success and growth of our program through the years rests on the shoulders of many people who are too numerous to acknowledge individually, but know that all their efforts are deeply appreciated and not forgotten.

 

At this time, the Montessori Center for Teacher Education is pleased to announce that the program will continue in the San Diego regional area under new ownership and at a new location. Beginning June 1, 2021, the program will be under the direction of Adela Corrales, Director of Country Montessori School, and will be located on its campus in Poway, California. All adult learners who have completed the academic phase of their credential will remain currently enrolled and will complete their credential under Adela’s leadership. Due to the change in ownership and location, classes will not be offered in 2021. Look for new courses to begin in 2022 detailed in the new upcoming website. We wish continued success for the Montessori Center for Teacher Education in the years ahead.

Montessori Center for Teacher Education welcomes diversity in our student body, faculty and staff. We adhere to a policy of non-discrimination in regard to race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

To satisfy “California Ability to Benefit” requirements, if the student does not have a college degree, an ability to benefit evaluation will be given on or before the first day of the academic component. This test does not cover any subject areas but rather screens for possession of minimum language, logic, and number skills.
