STOP PRESS - AMI 3-6 Assistant Certificate Course, 2015 now to be offered in Auckland!


Dear Maria Montessori Education Foundation Supporters

Assistants to Infancy 15MMEF had to make the unenviable decision to change location for the forthcoming AMI 3-6 Assistant Certificate Course due to be held in Christchurch in September.

Owing to insufficient registrations from the South Island, the course will now be offered at Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Northcote. The dates will remain the same Monday 28th September – Thursday 8th October (omitting Sun. 4th & Mon. 5th October).

MMEF did not make this decision lightly, we’re extremely disappointed particularly for the South Island schools who have registered staff.

We are now appealing to the Auckland Montessori community for billets –even a house-sit – to make it possible for the South Island teachers to still attend. If you have a spare room and could accommodate someone travelling from outside of Auckland for the 9-day duration please email ASAP. We thank you in advance for your consideration.

Existing registrations will roll over to the new location, unless you notify us otherwise.

Is Your First Aid Certificate Due for Renewal in February 2016?

First-AidWe’re looking into the feasibility of arranging First Aid Training for our current AMI students.

If your first aid certificate is due for renewal in February 2016 why not join us for a half day re-certification course in Albany. Re-certification  must be completed within 3 months of your previous certificate expiring.

If this is of interest to you or your staff please email or call Carol on 021 111 4133 by July 21st.

All for now, stay warm, stay well!
