Recently the Montessori Group has supported specific Universities and Governments to embed Montessori practices and teaching modules within their established Degree programmes and facilitated the development of robust quality assurance frameworks and staff training in order to prepare providers, on the ground, in-country, to become self-sustaining in the provision of quality Montessori teacher training.

Montessori by Busy Bees

Busy Bees and Montessori Centre International (MCI) work together to provide quality training and continual professional development to upskill Montessori teachers within Busy Bees. In addition, MCI ensure regular monitoring to uphold the Montessori Accreditation and Endorsement quality-marks across all Montessori by Busy Bees sites, with several earmarked to support ongoing placement and training provision as they move towards Beacon Centre vocational training on-site in the future. The partnership represents an exciting step forward in ensuring quality Montessori education and support for the wider early years sector.

This is an exciting and positive step for Busy Bees as we continue to expand and develop our educational offering in the UK. Thanks to MCI we will be able to offer the highest standard of training to our Montessori educators, which will mirror the success of our other Montessori nurseries across the globe. We are delighted to be working alongside MCI and supporting our mission to give every child the best start in life.
