About National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector
The National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector is a national nonprofit focused on increasing access to
high quality equitable and sustainable public Montessori schools (district, charter or magnet). Our work
includes convening and networking the public Montessori community; promoting Montessori as a desirable
public option; and implementation assistance to schools and districts including start-up, teacher training,
coaching, professional development, and extensive tool and resource development.
The NCMPS Montessori Teacher Residency (NCMTR), inspired by the residency approach to medical
training, is designed specifically to prepare teachers to work and thrive in public Montessori schools. It
provides practice-based teacher training to Residents who are embedded in schools, working with students,
and supported by experienced mentors.
