The graduate program in Montessori education is based on a strong foundation in child development. 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.
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.
Whether your interested in attending full-time, part-time or even taking advantage of our Summer Cohort option, Xavier's Montessori education program is coordinated to meet the needs of a traditional student or working professional. Also, Xavier has a variety of regional campuses in the greater Cincinnati area to bring this program closer to you.
Xavier makes sure that students get real world experience and the practicum opportunity allows students to work in a true Montessori environment.
