On-Site Montessori Training Courses

Montessori Teacher Preparation of Washington’s onsite classes have been accredited for sixteen years by the Montessori Accreditation Council of Teacher Education (MACTE). This accreditation allowed MTP of WA the opportunity to apply to the US Department of Homeland Security to grant I-20s to qualified international students. An additional 12-months of OPT is also available for those international students who would like to gain more experience in the field of Montessori.
