Missouri Montessori Early Childhood Curriculum Approved

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has approved the Montessori early childhood curriculum!  A crosswalk mapping the Montessori assistants to infancy and primary curriculum to Missouri’s early childhood state standards was submitted on behalf of Association Montessori International-USA (AMI/USA) and the American Montessori Society (AMS). The curriculum is approved for AMI-recognized schools and AMS-accredited schools only, ensuring that the quality of the Montessori name is protected.  The Montessori curriculum will soon be listed on the DESE website and in the Missouri Preschool Program Administrative Manual.
