Are there any MNetter Montessori teachers here, or know anyone who they could ask about this? I have no idea what course to do - there is a lot, varying greatly in price, but of course, I need it to be useful and make me employable


thats only a very small number of them ...soo confused.

why dont you contact your local montessori nursery? ask them what qualifications they accept?

I have emailed a few nurseries today. A lot of web sites seem to indicate AMI one, but it would mean moving dd (2) to England or Dublin, and as a single mum, I find that terribly daunting. I was hoping someone here could give me a personal account - what they did and how easily they were employed. Did they have any other training other than the Montessori teacher training?

was just looking at a website, there are no trained montessori teachers at all, but they do have montessori toys, and call themselves "Sunflowers Montessori Nursery Group"

koo, do you mind me asking do you make much more being trained in Montessori practices, compared to traditional nursery nurses?

There is only one Montessori nursery in all of NI too - need to phone them this week as they have no email.
