'To uphold the highest standards in meeting the educational needs of all who are committed to fostering the interests of the child through the Montessori philosophy.'
Founded in 2004, MCI Denver offers instruction for teachers in the Montessori Method. The Montessori system of education, a unique child-centred approach, places emphasis on educating the whole child, covering all aspects of development – intellectual, social, physical, emotional and spiritual. We aim to provide our students with the knowledge, experience, practical training and qualifications they will need to become Montessori educators.Our Early Childhood Teaching Diploma Course is accredited by MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education).We are a Title IV school, providing eligible students with Federal grants and loans.
MCI has recently expanded operations to include an original Montessori preschool, serving children between the ages of 2.5 - 6 years old.
We will fight to preserve the rights of each child to be protected from undue pressure and to make learning a fun and lifelong experience. We believe that:
Education of children can elevate society
The laws of development of the child are universal and inherent in children of all races and cultures.
Montessori education fosters awareness in the child of connectedness to all humanity and encourages his or her natural desire to become a contributing member of the human family.
A three year age mix in all classrooms allows for individual and social development.
