Welcome to the Montessori Center for Teacher Education
Now Enrolling for the 2019-20 School year!
The Montessori Center for Teacher Education - Washington State (MCTE), affiliated by the American Montessori Society and MACTE accredited through 2024, specializes in Montessori Early Childhood Teacher Education. With over 40 years of experience and expertise, Jeannine Hanson provides education to children, parents, and adult learners on one campus.
Teacher Education Classes are offered at Chestnut Montessori School, in Bellevue, during Tuesday and Thursday afternoons throughout the academic year to provide students the advantage of working in a Montessori school while learning about philosophy, child development, methodology, discipline and art.
Classes are collaborative, rather than competitive, and students experience transformative learning. If your goal is to teach young children, becoming a Montessori teacher is a most satisfying and joyful way.
