Online Distance Learning Program

Online Distance Learning


  Minimum requirements for entry to the Basic Course are a High School Certificate, or the equivalent.

Important Notice


The Online Distance Learning Course provides information and instruction in the theory and practice of the Montessori Method. On completion of the Basic Course students are issued a Montessori Teaching Certificate.

Internationally recognised standards for Montessori teacher training require that, in addition to completing the Basic Course (Montessori Certificate), students receive a minimum of 180 hours of direct tutor-contact time which students are offered by way of Workshops and Seminars held regularly every year at one of the ICME accredited centres. Students sit for an examination on completion of this time. A further 400 hours of practical experience (Teaching Practice or 'Practicum') are required in an ICME accredited Montessori kindergarten to qualify for an International Montessori Teaching Diploma which all students strive to achieve. Students are NOT obligated to continue to completion and may terminate their studies at any time.
