The purpose of Gulf Coast Montessori TEC is to provide quality Adult Learning services in Early Childhood, and Elementary Montessori education to the community so that children will benefit from the philosophy and pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori by becoming knowledgeable, competent, and independent citizens.

The emphasis on curriculum patterns, developmental levels, and current educational research will provide our teachers with added skills in differentiation of curriculum implementation as well as a stronger understanding of Dr. Montessori’s philosophy as applied to this age group.

The staff at Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center (GCMTEC) believe that the betterment of society comes through education and understanding the differences that surround us as members of this society. We believe that education of children through the pedagogy of Dr. Maria Montessori is the best way to achieve this end. In addition, the staff believes that the framework outlined by Dr. Montessori allows for adaptation to meet the needs of today’s learners.
