Who We Are

PCTE believes in forming lasting partnerships with our adult learners to support them throughout their training — and throughout their careers.

Founded in 1989, Princeton Center for Teacher Education (PCTE) is a Montessori teacher training center dedicated to helping adults find and cultivate the maximum potential in every child as the focus of its Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) accredited and American Montessori Society (AMS) affiliated teacher education programs. Its world-class facility within the Princeton Montessori School offers a hands-on learning experience led by a highly-trained and experienced faculty that is second to none.

We believe that even as adults, humans never stop learning. As such, PCTE believes in forming lasting partnerships with our adult learners to support them throughout their training — and throughout their careers.

“We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.” — Maria Montessori
