AMI 6-12 Assistants’ Certificate Course–Brochures Ready!


Kia Ora Kotou Friends of Maria Montessori Education Foundation

It’s true - the AMI 6-12 Assistant’s Certificate Course brochure is ready, brimming with information and waiting for you to download at

60 hours of face to face delivery with highly sought after AMI 6-12 trainer Alison Awes, Minnesota, is coming to a school near you! Well…

ESMS LogoEastern Suburbs Montessori Unit at Glendowie Primary, Auckland will be the venue for the course. You can even bring your togs and have a dip at St Helier’s Beach at the end of the day!

Instead of offering an early bird discount, we’re offering the same price for all. The only thing you have to do to ensure that this course can proceed is register by August 19th!

Alison Awes has an extremely busy schedule and must know if we have sufficient numbers by that date. We feel sure there will be given the amount of emails we’ve received to date about 6-12 training. This – we hope – is just the beginning! 

Download the brochure, complete the registration section  and send it to and deposit 50% of the course fee before August 19th. Alternatively you can register on-line at, complete the registration from and send part-payment to MMEF by August 19th.
