In order to work successfully as a Montessori teacher it is necessary to have sufficient educational background. Recognized as such are

  • A college degree for teaching Kindergarten or Elementary school
  • A degree for teaching Kindergarten
  • Matura
  • Another college degree, preferably in pedagogy or psychology
  • A completed apprenticeship
    Normally, there is a requirement for a state license in teaching to be able to teach at a Montessori school after completing the course. Although this state license is not
    a requirement for being admitted to the course, we do recommend that participants investigate whether such a license is needed in the country where they intend to work.
