About Us


The Montessori Institute

The Montessori Institute Denver recently celebrated its 25th anniversary offering AMI-recognized programs.

Currently, TMI offers the Assistants to Infancy, or A to I training. This course is the foundation of the Montessori curriculum, as it encompasses child development at the beginning of life from birth to three years. This course is offered over two summers. Our graduates extend around the world, working with children and in the communities in which they live. 

History of Montessori

Working in a Montessori environment is unlike traditional teaching. The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) training courses prepare adults to help children by following their natural rhythms, interests, and developmental needs. The preparation is rich, complex, and interesting. The work is satisfying and joyful.

AMI was established in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori and is now directed by an international board supported by distinguished scholars and respected leaders worldwide. It is the founding Montessori agency that supports authentic theory and quality practice. AMI presently organizes studies in affiliated training institutions throughout the world.

The AMI Montessori diploma is awarded only by AMI-recognized training centers, which meet rigorous content standards and offer extensively trained and experienced staff. The Montessori Institute of Denver is proud to be an AMI-recognized training center.

TMI warmly welcomes students from around the world. With this in mind, simultaneous translation equipment is available for which a group of students provides a translator. Students working in translation at The Montessori Institute bring an element of diversity which enriches the community.


AMI Advantage

The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) was established by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929 to maintain, propagate and further her innovative ideas and principles for the full development of the human being. AMI supports authentic and quality Montessori practices worldwide.
