Our vision began 35 years ago, when, after much deliberation and research, we decided to send our (then) two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Olivia, to a Montessori school in London called The Gatehouse Learning Centre. It was the best decision we ever made, as we watched her flourish in every conceivable area (academic, social and emotional), exceeding even our very high expectations.
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.
