ICME Accreditation


ICME offers accreditation to existing Montessori schools who wish to become part of the Montessori community.

ICME Accreditation applies a consultative approach which encourages development of higher standards and a programme of self-improvement. Full support is given to the Montessori school by the On-site consultant.

The accreditation process is designed to protect Montessori schools by increasing public understanding of what a true Montessori education offers. The process is also designed to promote team-building among the staff by involving them in creating goals for self-improvement, planning and evaluation.
