The adult learner applying to MI-NE becomes a candidate for the American Montessori Society (AMS) Infant and Toddler or Early Childhood Credential if she/he/they holds as a minimum a four-year college degree from an accredited United States institution. An AMS Associate Credential is awarded to students who do not have a four-year college degree from an accredited United States institution. Candidates for the Associate Credential must complete all requirements of the MI-NE Course.


MI-NE actively seeks qualified students, faculty, and staff to reflect the diverse backgrounds in our Montessori global community. MI-NE strives to provide an enriching curriculum and educational experience for all students, recognizing that global teaching and learning helps form strong, positive self-concepts and develops respect for human differences. Our curriculum and philosophy encourages understanding and respect for these differences while affirming fundamental similarities of humankind. Our cooperative community encourages the exploration of new concepts and creates learning opportunities that empower adult learners to actively approach learning in an atmosphere of courtesy and acceptance.

All members of the MI-NE community are valued for their contributions, talents, and opinions. The philosophy, curriculum, and administration of our programs aim to create an inclusive and accessible learning environment with respect to all applicable non-discrimination laws.
