The Modern Montessori Group is comprised of:

The College of Modern Montessori, which specialises in Montessori teacher training; and -
The School of Modern Montessori, which provides Montessori pre-primary and primary school education for children from 3 months to 12 years old.

Warning!

Be aware that some Montessori training organisations are claiming to have international accreditation. It is therefore important that you check the authenticity of their claims. When enrolling on a Montessori Teacher Training Programme, ensure that you verify the courses claims to accreditation. The College Of Modern Montessori is the ONLY Montessori Teacher Training Institution in South Africa to be internationally accredited by an independent accreditation board: MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education). Please be aware that an affiliation to an international institution is not the same as accreditation by an independent body - see more at the Macte website.
