United Montessori Association – Online Primary Montessori Teacher Training

Not everyone can attend school in person, especially in our adult years. Most adults have a multitude of responsibilities that must come first – caring for children or a full-time job is usually at the top of the list. But that shouldn’t stop you from learning or moving ahead with new career goals. With the technology available today, it’s possible to ‘attend’ school while at home with children or while working full-time. It’s often referred to as ‘distance learning’. It’s a great option for those who wish to change careers but can’t take a break from their current responsibilities for an entire school year.

If you’re interested in a career in Montessori, but you’re not able to attend a Montessori training center in person, then you should consider the Primary Montessori Training program by United Montessori Association (UMA).

The birthday loot bag for everyone …

So hopefully you’ve all heard about our 11th Anniversary (Birthday Bash). The great giveaways start tomorrow (Jan 15th, 2015) and run through until Jan 31, 2015.

There is only 1 winner for each of the giveaways, so that means that all but six of you will leave the party empty-handed. :(   Not a very fun way to end a party.

So we’ve decided to hand out the loot bag a little early so that everyone can enjoy our celebration. What’s the loot?…

Save 25 at MPS

A coupon code for 25% OFF! Those of you who have followed us for a long time know that we very rarely offer 25% Off, because our prices are already so low, compared to our competitors.

Use the coupon, enjoy the loot!

Coupon Code: BDAY2015   Valid Jan 14-28, 2015
