Summer 2020 & COVID-19 Update

Updated 4.23.2020

Dear Hope Montessori Community,

We are working hard at HMEI to prepare for the 2020 summer session. Over the last several weeks we have been adjusting to working remotely and transitioning our courses to an online learning format for our existing adult learners so that they can finish their course work at HMEI without disruption. We are committed to supporting our adult learners through this challenging time and preparing them to enter.

We know that incoming adult learners have many questions about the summer session at HMEI. Our plan is to move forward with the 2020 Montessori teacher education course at HMEI. We are following current events closely and heeding the guidance and recommendations from our local, state, and federal government and the CDC. Our first priority is always the safety and health of our adult learners, faculty and staff.

Currently, we are making plans to begin our teacher education courses mid June in an online format (asy followed by a 4 week  in residence face-to-face session  in July with additional online sessions during the practicum phase.   

We will remain flexible in our delivery method and session dates, as needed, for the safety and wellbeing of our adult learners, faculty, and staff. We remain committed to supporting emerging Montessori educators with an authentic and personal Montessori teacher education experience.

We will be updating this page and our Facebook page with more information as it becomes available.

We are still accepting applications and enrolling adult learners in our Summer 2020 cohorts for both the Infant Toddler and Early Childhood teacher education courses.

Be well,
