Career Options

Ready to change the world?

With a Credential in Montessori Education, you can help shape the minds of young learners and begin to change the world, one child at a time.


At the KSOE, you have the choice of earning a credential in one or both of the following levels:

  • Early Childhood (children from 3 through 6 years old)
  • Elementary Education (children from 6 through 12 years old)

After earning your credential, you will be qualified to teach in the appropriate age range at any public, private, or charter Montessori school.
