of Montessori teachers
As we begin a new decade, it is awe-inspiring to look back at MECR and its impact on Montessori education. MECR has been training adult learners to be Montessori guides for over 40 years. Over 1600 people have received their AMS credential from MECR, and many of those returned to earn credentials at other levels. Our graduates go out to the Denver area, the United States, and the world to teach and touch the lives of children. MECR is gratefully fulfilling its cosmic task to make the world a better place.
On behalf of MECR, past, present, and future, we welcome you!!

I’ve heard it said that, “life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” I did not believe this until 2016, when I took my first training – Birth to 3 at MECR. I can only describe the effect of that summer as dividing, splitting my life into the time before Montessori and everything from then on. The training was very transformative, focused not only on the “albums” but the inner preparation of a teacher. When I took my EC Montessori training at MECR the summer of 2019, I was totally convinced that MECR was my MECCA. They are very intentional on creating a diverse learning space that supports inclusivity and practice radical hospitality.
MECR provided a transformational experience for me. The community of engaged learners and supportive instructors helped prepare me for my career and beyond. I can’t imagine a greater place to learn and grow as a person and educator.
MECR is certainly a place that is full of such incredible humans, who are all working toward creating a space to inspire the next generation of learners. I am so grateful to have had the chance to be a part of both Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary courses and witness all that the Montessori philosophy has to offer for the Elementary student. Thank you for this home-away-from-home and showing me this piece of greatness in Colorado.
My experience at MECR was life-changing. The moment I walked into the door, I felt like I walked home. The environment radiated with acceptance, learning, respect, and love. The instructors beautifully modeled Montessori’s philosophy of grace and courtesy. Also, I deeply cherish the friendships I made during my process of learning and growing as a future Montessorian.
