AMS Early Childhood

American Montessori Society
Early Childhood Teacher (ages 3-6) Course


Montessori Teacher Education Center San Francisco Bay Area
in cooperation with
Infinity Children’s School  (Kowloon Tong)

The First and Only Internationally Recognized American Montessori Society Teacher Course in Hong Kong

American Montessori Society (AMS) affiliated
Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) accredited

Since our establishment in 2006, Infinity Children’s School (Kowloon Tong) (hereafter referred to as ICS) has been actively promoting Montessori philosophy and education to the Chinese community.  Several hundreds of seminars were held during these years introducing the Montessori approach of education.  We have left no stone unturned in the localization of Montessori educational method in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Since 2012, ICS has organized the American Montessori Society (AMS)-affiliated teacher education programme in Hong Kong: the first and only internationally recognized Montessori teacher education programme. As the AMS Full International Member School, ICS also serves as the practicum site for student-teachers to put theory into practice. This is a great opportunity to raise Hong Kong early childhood education’s educational status to an international standard. We will continue our mission by nurturing more parents and teachers for the contribution to the society.

The AMS Early Childhood Teacher course prepares adult learners for working with children aged two and one half to six years old. 320 Academic hours and 540 Practicum hours are required. Instruction is at Infinity Children's School (Kowloon Tong), Hong Kong. Practicum is at a full Montessori classroom.
