Why is an AMI diploma important?

In 1929, Dr. Maria Montessori, along with her son Mario Montessori, founded the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI). Dr. Montessori created the AMI as a safeguard to her work, training and educational principles.

The Association Montessori Internationale is the only Montessori teacher training organization endorsed by Dr. Maria Montessori herself.

Why AMI?


Knowledgeable Trainers

The trainers at FME were trained by Renilde Montessori, Dr. Maria Montessori’s youngest granddaughter, giving them in-depth knowledge and a unique understanding of Montessori principles and practices.
