It’s Never Been a Better Time to Study!

FullSizeRender (3)A browse of the NZ Education Gazette will confirm the dearth of Montessori teachers in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Now you have the chance to study for the internationally recognised AMI 3-6 Diploma without leaving the country! Gain a wealth of experience and then travel the world!

How much fuller and richer life would be if we saw this child in all his beauty, instead of focusing on all the little mistakes? …with this change in our hearts we will want to study [the child] in all his different phases, to study all his miracles…we must give this development, this miraculous force, the help it needs. It needs the warmth of the heart and it needs understanding. Let us call this help Education”. Montessori, Maria.

Cross-Credits Gained Towards a B.Tchg. ECE with

Te Rito Maioha

We’ve mentioned previously that students completing the new AMI 3-6 Diploma Level 7 will be automatically cross-credited 1/2 year of study towards the B.Tchg. ECE.  For anyone – without a generic ECE Diploma or Degree – who may be considering this, you don’t need to wait to complete the AMI Diploma first. 

Recent discussions between MMEF and Te Rito Maioha highlighted that students who are not working can study the remaining 1st year papers on-line from July 2018. Once the AMI Diploma is complete, so too is the 1st year of your degree. For more details contact mmefnz@outlook.com or studentservices@ecnz.ac.nz
