COURSES ABOUT MTCNE

Mission Statement

To provide education honoring the pedagogical principles of Dr. Maria Montessori by offering AMI Montessori teacher education, professional development, parent education, and community outreach for the benefit of children throughout the world.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

CREC is an intentionally diverse social justice organization whose members work to acknowledge, respect, and empathize with people of all different identifiers, such as race, socioeconomic status, gender identity and expression, education, age, ability, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, language, nationality, and religion. We commit to affirm and honor the lived experiences of others, to willingly challenge inherited beliefs and ideologies, and consequently learn, grow, and serve.

The Montessori Training Center Northeast (MTCNE) is managed and operated by the Capital Region Education Council (CREC) in Hartford, CT.  Founded in 2003, MTCNE serves as the only Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) teacher training center in the Northeast United States. In addition to teacher training we serve as a central location offering support to our diverse Alumni community and Montessori schools both nationally and internationally.
