Northern Virginia Montessori Institute is hosted by the Montessori Academy at Belmont Greene in Ashburn, VA. Our goal is to help individuals become effective Montessori Teachers of children age two and one half years through six years. We strive for excellence as we prepare teachers for the task of assisting children’s cognitive, emotional, social, and moral development. Northern Virginia Montessori Institute offers a training format which provides a reasonable and manageable training schedule and year round support.
The NVMI Early Childhood Program can be completed in approximately 12 months. The academic phase consists of six weeks the first summer, four weekend seminars during the practicum year (October, December, March and May), followed by an additional two weeks the second summer. Summer course hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Seminars are held on Saturdays and Sundays.
NVMI is accredited by the MACTE Commission and it is affiliated with the American Montessori Society. We are certified to operate by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia.
