Master of Education Degree in Montessori Education


The Xavier University Montessori teacher education programs grant an American Montessori Credential and Ohio Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten to grade 3 licensure.  The programs are affiliated with the American Montessori Society, and accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education.

The graduate program in Montessori education is based on a strong foundation in child development.  This allows students the option of teaching in a public or private Montessori school, as well as in a traditional public or private school.  The program prepares the student with an understanding of Dr. Montessori’s philosophy in light of the education of the past and present.  The Montessori curriculum courses prepare the student to teach practical life, art, music, movement, sensorial, math, language, geography, science and history.  Child development is emphasized in courses

 ,  ,   and is an integral part of all the courses.  An Ohio four year resident educator licensure for Pre-K-3, and American Montessori Society Early Childhood and Elementary credentials are available within the master’s degree.  Those holding a master’s degree may obtain certification by planning a post-master’s program with the director of the Montessori teacher education program.
