Why become a Montessori teacher?

Featured Video Play Icon

The principles and practices of a Montessori classroom are what great educators already desire to provide for their students—an environment that serves the particular needs of each child’s stage of development and allows freedom for children to discover their own path to becoming capable individuals.

Join a global network of professionals who believe in creating the right environment for children to develop emotionally, socially, behaviourally, and academically. When you use the Montessori educational approach, you will guide children to actively engage in their own unique development, discover the joys of learning and become well-rounded, capable individuals who are connected to themselves and others.

“The teacher must give her lesson, plant the seed and then disappear; observing and waiting.”

Maria Montessori, The Call of Education, Vol. 11, no. IV, December 1925
