Woodland Hill is proud to announce that our school will host the first Montessori Teacher training center in the Greater Capital Region. Northeast Montessori Institute (NMI), an established Montessori Training program since 1984, is creating a satellite location here and will use our facility to teach and train future Montessori teachers. The initial program will be an Early Childhood (ages 2.5 to 6) Course of Study. Martha Monahan, NMI’s executive director, has asked our former faculty member, Nancy Hillengas to be the On-Site Coordinator, with several current and former WHMS faculty as instructors.
With 12 to 15 adult learners expected, the program will run for three weeks in the summer – July 9 to July 27, followed by weekend seminars throughout the academic year (October 6—8, 2018; November 16—18, 2018; January 19 — 21, 2019; March 9 & 10, 2019; April 12 — 14, 2019; and May 18 & 19, 2019). Tuition is $5,600, plus $900 in curriculum and membership fees, for a total of $6,500.
We are excited to bring this new dimension of Montessori education to the Capital Region.
