Bringing our Early Childhood Credential Program directly to the Boise area.  Classes are conducted at Eagle Montessori School (MSAC accredited, AMS affiliated).  10 students are required to run program. 

We are excited to offer a new blended course for Boise too!  A portion of our course will now be conducted on-line through Flathead Valley Community College.  The on-line portion consists of three classes:  Montessori Philosophy and Foundations of Early Childhood Part I & Part II and Montessori Classroom Leadership.  These classes will be offered in a progression, one each semester beginning in the summer.  The addition of the on-line element will reduce the time required for students to be in class and provide a consistent means of contact and focus throughout the year.  Students will earn college credit (undergraduate) for the completion of these classes.

While these classes are a required part of our credential course, students must complete FVCC admission and register for the on-line classes directly through FVCC.  Tuition for these classes is administered by FVCC and therefore due at the time of registration.  The tuition amount is dependent upon residency status - the estimated total of which for all three classes is $1200-$1600.  For more information please visit:
