Phoenix, Arizona | Primary Teacher Training

Academic Year Course — Evenings

The Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in Phoenix, Arizona welcomes you!

The Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies (SIMS) offers a supportive and rigorous training program with translation into Chinese, Chinese albums and exams, individualized planning for observation and practice teaching, and an exciting American experience! We’ll set up your accommodations in Phoenix, match you with a local student to help you settle in, make sure you feel at home by introducing you to nearby Chinese markets, and organize optional visits to exciting places like the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

Please Note: SIMS is pleased to announce that it will be accepting students who wish to transfer their application from MICD in China. This will be a comprehensive program that will allow you to complete your AMI primary training and have a broader experience in the US with a group of Chinese students also studying to become Montessori teachers. Find out why students from around the world have chosen SIMS!

For Chinese students interested in attending our Chinese-speaking AMI training in the United States, there are two options:

1

Our partnership with MICD allows you to transfer your existing MICD application to us, by filling out a simple form. We will then communicate directly with MICD regarding your existing application.

2

You are also welcome to apply directly to SIMS if you do not have an application on file with MICD (the SIMS application process is in English, but we will still be happy to include you in our Chinese-speaking cohort and program).
