Montessori Professional Development

Throughout the year, Washington Montessori Institute offers a variety of professional development opportunities. There are conferences, workshops, and lectures designed to enrich the practice of Montessori teachers and assistants. See our news page for current offerings.

Annually, WMI offers an AMI Primary Assistant's Course. This is a two-week course of study that meets all day. Students who attend all classes, complete written asignments, and complete eight hours of observation will be awarded an AMI Assistant Certificate. Janet McDonell is the director of this course.
