CREC is an intentionally diverse social justice organization whose members work to acknowledge, respect, and empathize with people of all different identifiers, such as race, socioeconomic status, gender identity and expression, education, age, ability, ethnicity, culture, sexual orientation, language, nationality, and religion. We commit to affirm and honor the lived experiences of others, to willingly challenge inherited beliefs and ideologies, and consequently learn, grow, and serve.
The Montessori Training Center Northeast (MTCNE) is managed and operated by the Capital Region Education Council (CREC) in Hartford, CT. Founded in 2003, MTCNE serves as the only Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) teacher training center in the Northeast United States. In addition to teacher training we serve as a central location offering support to our diverse Alumni community and Montessori schools both nationally and internationally.
MTCNE is now managing two distinct scholarship funds to benefit future students seeking AMI training as a diploma only or as part of a degree pathway at the University of Hartford. Learn more about the application process.
