Montessori Centre International (MCI) is one of the UK's leading providers of Montessori and Early Years training. The Montessori Principle is the world's largest global education movement, inspired by Dr. Maria Montessori in the early 1900s. At Montessori Centre International (MCI), we have a vibrant learning community of students from all over the world who come to learn about the Montessori approach and what it offers young children. We offer 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. We have trained 4,000 students over the last 20 years.

Our prime objective is to help you, whether you are a student wanting to train as a practitioner, a current practitioner, a potential Montessori parent, a Montessori setting Manager or Owner, or a member of the public wanting to know more about Montessori pedagogy.

Montessori Centre International is part of the Montessori Group, which includes the Montessori St Nicholas charity that carries out social impact work. The Group also includes a membership organisation and accreditation service to guarantee the quality of Montessori settings. Visit the Group website for more information.
