AMI pedagogical standards maintain the level of excellence that Maria Montessori envisioned. Established by the AMI Scientific Pedagogy Group, the standards insure that each school offers programs for their children that allow for their full intellectual, social, and psychological growth and that the approach is consistent with what is presented in AMI training courses worldwide. The Teacher There will be one AMI trained teacher at the appropriate age level in each class. Assistants Each class may have one non-teaching assistant. Should local regulations make it necessary to have more than one aide, he/she should be a non-teaching aide and should assist the [guide] by making materials, supervising outdoor activities, and assisting with field trips or “going-out.” The Materials Each classroom must be equipped with a complete set of Montessori materials from an AMI approved manufacturer. There can be slight differences in the materials presented on AMI training courses, therefore, a “full set” of AMI materials includes those materials needed by the AMI trained teacher to present lessons given in their albums and according to their training.
