The Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) is the primary regulating body in Canada for accredited Montessori Schools. Schools that wish to be accredited by CCMA must apply and meet and adhere to a strict level of criteria, some of which include:

  • Each classroom has at least one teacher with a recognized age-appropriate Montessori Teaching Certificate issued by a MACTE accredited or AMI teacher-training programme, or any other teacher training programme that may be recognized by the CCMA
  • Each classroom has 3-year multi-age groupings (as a minimum) i.e. 3-6, 6-9, 9-12
  • Programmes for children 3-6 years of age require attendance five days per week
  • Complete list of criteria

  • In Quebec, CCMA does not currently have any member schools. This however, does not necessarily mean that there are not 'real' Montessori schools in Quebec, they may just choose not to be a CCMA member. Unfortunately this makes it more difficult for Quebec families to find a quality Montessori school, it is not impossible. Follow the CCMA guidelines, and ask schools about their programs, teacher qualifications and philosophy. You can also print this Montessori Schools Checklist and make sure that the schools you are considering meet the requirements.
