Seacoast Center for Education has provided services to Montessori teachers and schools since 1992, including off-site training by contract and international consultation.
Seacoast Center is a charter member of MACTE, USDE recognized, and affiliated with the American Montessori Society with fully accredited Elementary I and Elementary I-II programs.
We are pleased to celebrate our 24th year as an institution with certification programs and professional development in South Carolina and New Hampshire devoted to the important work of the teacher of the younger child.
We offer and ask for courtesy and a high degree of professionalism. Our approach to Montessori subject areas involves respect for our educational heritage and traditions as well as openness to the resources available to us today.
Seacoast Center also provides additional consultation and professional development options by private contract world-wide.
Adult Learners have access to online support during the academic year including discussion groups, collaborative projects, and curriculum enhancements. Persons who live outside the program site area may arrange for work to be made up during summer lab hours. Supervised evening lab times allow flexible practice schedules and travel. Practice Lab hours requirements vary by site and are published with the complete schedule distributed to adult learners upon acceptance.
Attendance at all academic sessions and a 1080 hour practicum experience at an approved site are required for AMS certification students.
Seminars Seminars consist of observations (arranged by the course participant) lecture/discussion. Seminar attendance is required by residence.
While we are happy to assist within reasonable limits, it remains the responsibility of the student to locate an acceptable practicum site and to fulfill all practicum requirements. Neither employment nor salary levels can be guaranteed by Seacoast Center.
Course Dates Summer program dates are for entering and returning students. Online participation is required during the academic year for all program sites and levels.
