Different Montessori Schools

Are all Montessori schools alike?

Although there are Montessori schools all over the world, all Montessori schools are not alike. Dr. Montessori’s vision for children spread very quickly, and the term/concept of “Montessori” was not copyrighted. Differences in the quality of teacher-training, school standards, and adherence to the Montessori philosophy all affect the quality of a Montessori school. Schools may be organized and governed very differently, and this too can affect what you see in the program itself. Glen Abbey Montessori School is accredited by the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) which means that our school is equipped with the full range of Montessori materials, and the teachers are fully qualified.
