International Montessori Institute (IMI)

International Montessori Institute (IMI) is a European training centre with presence in several countries and continents, specialised in Montessori Education.

We have a clear objective: to offer a rigorous and classic Montessori training based on the original sources of Dr Maria Montessori, adapted to the needs of current education, bringing in a single training centre the best of both Italian and Anglo-Saxon lore. To do this, we select trainers of both profiles thus offering our students a broad and unique Montessori Education approach.


Our teaching staff has been carefully selected for its extensive international experience, with the aim of transmitting all the wealth of the Montessori Method.

This interesting combination makes IMI a unique Montessorian meeting point in the world, in which inter-Montessorian dialogue is generated that ensures fidelity to the ideas and vision of Dr. Maria Montessori.

We also collaborate with different entities, foundations and private institutions that share our values ​​and our mission and wish to participate in achieving a better future for young people, entities such as:

  • UB – University of Barcelona (Spain)
  • Bruno Munari Plesso Mauri (Italy)
  • CNM – Nascita Montessori centre (Italy)
  • UMM – Montessori University Mexico (Mexico)
  • CML – Montessori León centre (Mexico)
  • FDI – European Institute of Design (Spain)


Our mission

Since this educational model is recognised by a large number of public and private institutions and organizations, whose objective is to help the child obtain a comprehensive development, to achieve a maximum degree in their intellectual, physical and spiritual abilities, our purpose is to continue with the diffusion of the great work of Dr. Montessori, trying that all the children can learn through this method, getting some day to be able to introduce the Montessori pedagogy in the public system.

A Montessori classroom is a prepared environment, where children interact and develop their potential. Children become the centre of everything. The learning rhythms are different, therefore, the activities must be focused according to that rhythm, so they must be individualised.


Our vision

Our links with different public and private organisations, both national and international, are increasingly firm, which drives us to continue actively collaborating in the creation of new trainings. One of our biggest challenges is to strengthen our presence at a national level and, in turn, increase our presence at an international level. For this, in addition to our online training, we conduct seminars and on-site training in different countries and continents.
The implementation of new training in different languages, English, Italian and soon Portuguese, will allow us to impart the Montessori method beyond any border.


Our values

The ethical principles on which the culture of our centre is based, and mark our behaviour patterns, are the same as Dr Montessori postulated in life. For this reason, our main concern is children. We believe in a society relied on cohesion, made up values ​​learned since childhood with an educational system that sets the child in the centre, giving it confidence and self-confidence; providing the necessary tools to fully develop.


Looking for career opportunities with a future?

The quality of our training and the flexibility of new technologies have made us the Montessori pedagogy training reference centre. Thanks to a magnificent teaching staff and a team willing to offer the best of themselves, IMI is now a safe bet.

Since the opening of the first Montessori school in Rome in 1907, Montessori education has extended to such an extent that there are currently more than 25,000 Montessori schools worldwide. Maria Montessori transformed education by creating pedagogical materials that favor learning and focus on the idea that if something has to change it must be the school, not the child.

All our students can benefit from the jobs published on the Employment Portal of our Virtual Campus that we receive from different Montessori centres worldwide.

During 2019 we had the pleasure and privilege of having more than 2600 new students who have passed through our classrooms of on-site, blended and online trainings. Students from such diverse backgrounds as: China, United States, Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Venezuela, Chile, Canada, Italy, France, England, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Iceland etc.
