Butler Montessori School Accreditation
AMI Certificate Of Recognition
Butler Montessori is certified by Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
AMI was started by Dr. Maria Montessori to ensure that teachers are trained in a specific manner and schools continue to be operated according to her design and methods.
To be eligible for an AMI Certificate of Recognition, a school must have:
- One teacher holding an AMI diploma (for the appropriate age level) for each class.
- Children in classes of mixed age levels (3–6, 6–9, 9–12).
- A complete set of AMI-approved materials for each classroom from a manufacturer of approved materials.
- A philosophical approach consistent with what is given in AMI training courses.
An AMI Certificate of Recognition recognizes the comprehensive adherence to the Montessori principles and practices. Butler Montessori is one of a handful of schools in Maryland that meets AMI’s strict criteria for its Certificate of Recognition for programs serving ages 3 through 12.
