The Providence Montessori Teacher Education Center (PMTEC) is sponsored by Providence Montessori School. Founded in 1965, Providence Montessori School is a non-profit, private school accredited by the American Montessori Society (AMS).

Located on five acres of land in Lexington, Kentucky, PMTEC is just minutes from the center of downtown and the surrounding horse farms. The courses are offered in our beautiful facility which has fully-equipped classrooms. Our campus features gardens, fields and a small pond.

We offer three 5-hour seminars, totaling 15 hours, throughout the school year for current teachers to fulfill their required continuing education units (CEUs).

Currently, Providence Montessori is not offering Montessori Certification for teachers.  We recommend contacting Montessori Opportunities at .
