All fees are included in the tuition, including student membership and all certification fees to the American Montessori Society and the Montessori Accreditation Commission for Teacher Education (MACTE).

There are no additional tuition charges for the January and June seminars.

Books and Supplies

Students are responsible for purchasing the required texts.These are mostly Montessori books which are available in paperback, and detailed information and book order forms are provided when you apply.

Throughout the course, students receive an extensive compilation of resource material that has been developed by staff members and is not otherwise available in print. There is no additional fee for this material.

We also provide an extensive resource library of current titles related to all areas of Montessori study, child development, and education as well as a complete selection of video tapes.

Payment Plans

Tuition payment plans are outlined above.

A paid practicum provides income while studying. The amount of the stipend for the practicum varies according to the school and the qualifications of the student, and it is often possible to make extra money by assuming additional responsibilities at the school. Since the practicum requirement is for one session each day, students sometimes find it possible to maintain other part-time employment as well.

A limited number of partial scholarships is available from the AMS scholarship fund. Awards are based on need and are very competitive. The AMS deadline for scholarship application is May 1, and you must already be enrolled in a teacher certification program to apply. This means NEMTEC must have your completed application by April 1. Further information is available by calling the NEMTEC office.

"The word education must not be understood in the sense of teaching but of assisting the psychological development of the child." - Maria Montessori
