The Walton Family Foundation has awarded a grant of $4.8 million to the University of Hartford and Montessori Training Center Northeast (MTCNE) to establish an undergraduate Montessori education program at the University. The new bachelor’s degree program will launch this fall for early childhood and elementary education with a Montessori concentration. The goal is for the Montessori bachelor’s degree to become a tuition-based, self-sustaining program by 2022. The award is one of the largest educational grants in the University’s history and recognizes the decades-long partnership between the University and MTCNE. Read the full press release.
