Montessori teacher training – what are the options?

Today, I want to share some Montessori teacher trainings options.

It is my intention to interview trainers from different training centres to give you a broad view of the different options available.

My best advice would be to first start with why do you want to become a Montessori teacher?

Do you want to teach in a school? Do you want to become a childminder? Would you like to open your own school? Do you want to work with parents? Or are you considering the training in order to better support your own children? In this scenario, I would advise you to consider a Montessori course for parents.

Today I want to share more information about the Montessori Centre International or also called Montessori St-Nicholas, based in London, UK.

Maria Montessori herself founded the training centre in 1946 on her last trip to London.

Montessori Centre International (MCI) is one of the UK’s leading providers of Montessori and Early Years training. Montessori St Nicholas (MSN) is the name of the largest UK Montessori representative. We have nearly 700 Montessori settings and schools and 4000 individuals in our membership. Most Montessori settings in the UK are privately owned and governed accordingly.

MCI offers a range of training opportunities, including nationally recognised qualifications, professional development for practitioners, courses for childminders, parents or for those who simply want to find out more about Montessori. 

Training options are various with in person training, online training and blended options. 

During the Online Montessori Parenting Conference, I had the pleasure to chat with Hannah Baynham, a trainer at the MCI.

Watch her interview below!

I will share information about other Montessori training programs very soon!
