Starting your journey with first steps into Montessori?
Taking a new direction into Early Years Education?
Leaving the corporate world for a new challenge?
Our Diploma in Montessori Pedagogy (Early Years Educator) is the ideal course if you’re starting a career in Montessori education; it’s a nationally recognised qualification with the added benefit of flexible study options.
If you’re going to be working at the same time you’re studying, or juggling family commitments, and will need to fit your studies into an already hectic life, you can choose either part-time or online study over a maximum of 2 years.
Students who take the part-time option will attend one of our MCI centres one day per week over one year, choosing to study at one of our centres based in London, Essex and Hampshire. But students who are studying online won’t miss the opportunity for face-to-face contact with our amazing tutors, as they’re required to attend an apparatus workshop.
The course includes professional placement in a Montessori setting. The MCI team will support you with this part of the course as much as you need, including finding the perfect place.
You can choose to study at Level 3, or Level 4 with the option to progress on to a Foundation Degree. (And did you know that our Foundation Degree can be studied through blended learning options, and there are FIVE different pathways to choose from?!)
