*A USA Montessori Diploma should not be confused with a Montessori Elementary Teaching Credential offered by AMS or AMI--These programs are very costly, require lengthy physical attendance in a classroom, and demand a one-year full-time student teacher practicum at an accredited Montessori school for elementary-age children.  While a traditional program may be the most thorough way to acquire Montessori training, financial and geographical constraints preclude many aspiring educators from realizing their dream of teaching or homeschooling utilizing the Montessori educational model.
