For applications with an Associate’s Degree or High School diploma applying

for an American Montessori Society (AMS) Associate Credential:

Infant and Toddler

Early Childhood


AMS grants the AMS Associate Infant and Toddler Credential and Associate Early Childhood Credential when the course graduate has a High School Diploma or GED, but not a Bachelor's Degree. Country, state, and local employment requirements vary widely and change periodically. In addition, employment requirements vary in different types of schools (e.g. independent, public, charter, faith-based, publically funded, childcare). In some locations or schools an Associate Credential may not qualify for full teaching responsibility.

Even if it is currently possible to qualify for full teaching responsibility without a Bachelor's Degree, employment regulations may change in the future. The applicant is responsible for checking specific jurisdictions and schools for particular employment and licensing requirements.

Applicants for the CME|NY AMS Infant and Toddler and Early Childhood Course who do not have a U.S. Bachelor's Degree from a regionally accredited College or University or equivalent, are required to sign a statement verifying that they have received the above information before they are considered for acceptance into the CME|NY course. 

AMS strongly encourages holders of the Associate Credential to obtain a Bachelor's Degree within seven years of credentialing.

CMSM candidates without a B.A. will receive a Certificate of Attendance or a Certificate of Completion from CME|NY and do not receive an AMS Credential.






REGISTRATION FEE: Pay the Registration fee for U.S. Adult Learner or International.


OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT: Have one OFFICIAL transcript sent to our office from your High School or the accredited 2-year college where you received your degree.
