Teachers are always learning and growing along with their students. However, sometimes it's hard to keep up with what students need.
Teachers are also on a constant cycle of certification. We offer CEUs for our courses and programs that can be used in several states for recertification. We also have some CPD approved courses for teachers in Maryland who need credits toward recertification.

Montessori teachers, staff, and leadership are also in need of continuous professional development to enhance their skills and knowledge. Professional development allows Montessori teachers to stay updated with the latest research, techniques, and strategies in education. It helps them to continually improve their teaching methods and adapt to the changing needs of their students.
We partner with Montessori organizations to provide CEUs for events so that teachers can receive professional development credit toward their recertifications.
