Parents investing in Montessori education are likely to carry out thorough research before choosing the best educational setting for their child. Choosing a STAR recognised educational setting for your child provides reassurance that their learning experiences will be of the highest-quality with practitioners and educators dedicated to fulfilling the educational standards and principles key to a Montessori education.

Montessori Centre International’s STAR framework gives a parent the confidence that their child will not only have access to innovative, appropriate and relevant educational support but will also have the best chance of working towards their full potential. Parents can be reassured that annual monitoring and a regular reaccreditation cycle to retain STAR recognition help to ensure that both Montessori principles and practice will be maintained.

Achievement of STAR demonstrates a setting’s commitment to offering its children the highest possible standards of education, respect, attention and care. Accreditation is awarded to settings that trust and respect a child’s need to learn through freedom of choice. They offer a prepared learning environment that supports a child’s natural path of development and they acknowledge each child’s individuality within the context of their own family.

Are you in interested in gaining accreditation?

Achieving STAR recognition provides external assurance of educational quality and excellence within Montessori practice and across all educational activity within a setting.

The STAR certificate indicates that the setting has successfully engaged with a professional peer-reviewed accreditation process and can illustrate a commitment to transparency and openness for all prospective children; their families and potential new staff.

The STAR process affords recognition to the accredited setting that can be used to provide regulatory inspection bodies, (such as Ofsted in the UK), with effective evidence of professional good standing.

Are you a teacher, trainee teacher or other staff member looking for quality Montessori settings?

There is a strong ethos amongst Montessori practitioners for quality education based on internationally accepted values – this principled approach is central to the STAR framework.

The process of recognition focuses on high-quality evidence from the setting, reflective of clearly communicated standards of excellence and a drive for continual improvement within the setting. The peer-review approach of the STAR observation and evaluation processes ensures a shared commitment to raising standards and expectations across the sector, for the benefit of individual settings and of the profession.

STAR represents a level of support and commitment for its accredited settings and their staff that secures encouragement; effective training, and personal and professional development opportunities whilst working in stimulating and inspirational environments.

STAR recognition provides a straightforward way of demonstrating to parents, the wider community, regulatory bodies and inspection services that a setting is committed to on-going quality provision, self-evaluation and quality improvement. STAR demonstrates a setting’s commitment to offering its children the highest possible standards of education, respect, attention and care.

Accreditation is awarded to settings that trust and respect a child’s need to learn through freedom of choice. They offer a prepared learning environment that supports a child’s natural path of development and they acknowledge each child’s individuality within the context of their own family.
