Dear Maria Montessori Education Foundation Supporters

Picture this – have a fabulously relaxing Christmas and New Year with family and friends, then re-connect your neural pathways and join the students of the AMI 3-6 Course for a three week introduction to Montessori’s unique yet profound approach to child development.

What you will experience during these short three weeks underpins EVERYTHING we do in the Montessori 3-6 environment. This is THE core Montessori experience, delivered by AMI trainer Cheryl Ferreira—one of the world’s leading Montessori trainers.

We cannot emphasise its value enough…!

These three weeks offer a unique opportunity for  Montessori school owners, parents, prospective parents, and ECE teachers working in Montessori environments –everyone, really—to understand the enormous potential of young children.

One of the already enrolled attendees said,

“I am neither a Montessori teacher nor a parent, yet, but I don’t want to miss the opportunity to learn about child cognitive development and the Montessori method from one of the world’s leading Montessori educators.”

You do not want to miss this.  Follow the link to download your registration form and send it to us with your deposit by November 28th:

Now, for students aiming to make Montessori their career, we remind you  that MMEF will hear  next week about our application for TEC funding, the success in which will enable you to apply for student loans. A final reminder, therefore: ALL applications for the full AMI 3-6 Course for the next year must be processed by November 30th. Simply text Carol on 021 2601802 and she’ll look out for your application.

Ka Kite,

Carol, Tia, Anna, Shirley & Lynne – MMEF Trustees

As the students received their diplomas from Director of Training Cheryl Ferreira, it was standing room only as family, friends and distinguished guests, including AMI examiners Amy Kirkham and Pamela Nunn, shared the celebrations. OUR FIRST CLASS OF graduates wasn’t the only excitement in January.MMEF also received positive results following the NZQA External Evaluation Review at the beginning of the year.


New Year and New Adventures

Do continue to keep us informed of your interest in AMI Training and when there’s a real demand in New Zealand – which there really hasn’t been to date – we can make it happen. MMEF were unable to secure funding at the end of last year therefore, the course that was planned for 2012 is unable to proceed as planned. We have good news and bad news this New Year.


We did it with minutes to spare

Please download your application form from mmef.org.nz, complete your application, and send it to us at MMEF, PO Box 108054, Symonds St, Auckland – simply add a covering letter stating that your application is pending the outcome of TEC funding.


Newsletter | MMEF

To give you a little background information, MMEF offered school owners and administrators the opportunity to enrol for the theory-only module of the last course, thus offering the opportunity to those in administrative roles to gain an understanding of the theoretical underpinning of Montessori’s approach to child development.
