Established in 1962, Washington Montessori Institute is the first and oldest AMI training center in the United States.

Our mission is to offer a comprehensive course of study for adults that effectively prepares them to lead a community of children in all aspects of development. We invite you to learn more about becoming an AMI trained Montessori teacher.

We currently offer Orientation Courses, Workshops, and other Professional Development opportunities for the Montessori community and others interested in learning about Montessori.
