Thanks to everyone, you did beautiful work every day training a new generation of Educators and continuing on the legacy of Maria Montessori for educating our children around the world.

Thanks to everyone, you did beautiful work every day, training a new generation of Educators and continuing on the legacy of Maria Montessori for educating our children around the world.

I would also like to acknowledge and say an enormous thank you to MWEI for offering the courses you do, in the format you do, which allow so many of us to complete our valuable Montessori training. Without your course and flexibility, I would not have been able to complete this training and accreditation and as a…

 I was able to complete the Graduate Diploma in Education as well as my Montessori Diploma (3-6) in a little under four years.  I am now employed as a full-time Class Director in a 3-6 environment within a Montessori primary school, and my training fully prepared me for my current role.

The Curriculum Workshops were engaging, fascinating and excellent preparation for teaching in a Montessori or mainstream school environment.  My tutor provided insightful and timely feedback, and she inspired me to work hard.

The course was family-friendly allowing me to work, have a family, and study. The trainers were current, knowledgeable and ensured you had time to take in and understand the course content. I would recommend Montessori training through MWEI as I felt I was valued in a personal way and supported to implement professional educational practice.

I thoroughly enjoyed completing my Grad. Dip Education (Montessori) through MWEI. I met a great network of people at the workshops from around Australia and New Zealand. There was a wealth of experience and practical solutions each time we came together to observe the Montessori curriculum in practice.  

The Montessori Institute Graduate Diploma in Education course offered me one of the quickest options to study for a mainstream teaching degree, as well as to earn a Montessori Diploma. The study modules were challenging and thorough.  

I feel very lucky that I'm able to learn more about Montessori and work with my 3-6 year olds, after today I feel even more excited to get back to work and put into practice what I have learnt and share with my fellow educators. 3-6 years Introductory Workshop

This was one of my favourite PD's. It was wonderful to have such concrete examples of how to educate. 6-12 years Curriculum Workshop

Of all the PD I have attended over the last ten years, this has been one of my favourite. It has really invigorated me in my Montessori teaching practice, reminded me of why Montessori and given me tangible tools I can take away and use in my classroom.

The presenter was very engaging and knowledgeable. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole PD. I am looking forward to implementing new activities in my classroom. 6-12 years Curriculum Workshop
