Staff from the Kent & Sussex Montessori Centre, working through the parallel organisation Montessori Assessment & Education Ltd, (MAEL) have successfully undertaken a number of government contracts at home and abroad. This has included training prospective Montessori teachers in the 3-6 year and 6-9 year old age ranges; training for babies and toddlers (0-3 years) and the 9-12 years age range is also available.

Staff have expertise in working within a multi-cultural setting, particularly with Arabic speaking teachers, and also in the conversion of mainstream State schools into Montessori schools. Where children do not start school until 6 years of age, MAEL has provided specialist qualifications that included a bridging component covering the essentials of the child’s pre-school experience.

MAEL provides:

  • Teacher training qualifications, 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, & 9-12 years age-ranges.
  • Consultancy services for setting up Montessori schools, including building layout and furniture design, and ordering of Montessori materials.
  • Curriculum design, including mapping the Montessori curriculum to the National Curriculum standards of various countries.
  • Management courses for key personnel in a Montessori setting.

Courses can be tailored to meet specific requirements. Significant discounts are available for training of larger numbers of prospective teachers. Please contact the Principal for further information, or to invite the submission of a contract tender.
