A Unified Voice for Montessori Schools across Canada

The CCMA was founded in 1977 by a small group of dedicated administrators who were committed to supporting each other and promoting public awareness of what an authentic Montessori school offers to families. CCMA is dedicated to promoting excellence in Montessori education and supports Accreditation as a way for schools to set standards and be accountable to each other, to parents and to the public. Today there are more than 100 schools in the organization ranging in size from an enrollment of 30 students to larger schools of over 700 students. Toddler, early childhood, elementary and adolescent programmes are all represented within CCMA schools.

As a legally registered Canadian not-for-profit corporation, the CCMA is committed to supporting Canadian Montessori administrators by offering professional support and promoting public awareness of authentic Montessori schools.

The CCMA serves as a source of knowledge and expertise in Montessori school administration that is a reliable resource for administrators, teachers, parents, policy makers, and the media.

The CCMA’s Mission

CCMA promotes standards of excellence in Montessori education through accreditation, support and service, and provides a unified voice for our members across Canada.

The CCMA’s Vision

CCMA schools will implement an education that meets the needs of each individual child and inspires them to make the world a better place.

“Our aim is not merely to make children understand, and still less to force them to memorize, but so to tough their imaginations as to enthuse them to their innermost core.” — Dr. Maria Montessori



CCMA Applicant and Accredited Member Schools

As the name Montessori is in the public domain, any school can carry the name without including authentic Montessori programming for your child.

CCMA member schools meet high standards and special criteria designed to guarantee a true Montessori education. Parents who choose a CCMA-accredited school are joining those who want the best possible education for their children based on authentic Montessori philosophy and practice.

A Montessori school offers your child:

  • A carefully prepared child-centered environment
  • Mixed age groups
  • An individualized program that allows your child to progress at his/her own pace
  • Activity-based learning
  • Learning through movement
  • Freedom and responsibility to direct their learning
  • Hands-on learning
  • Co-operation, collaboration – not competition

A Montessori school offers parents:

  • Ongoing feedback on your child's progress
  • An invitation to participate in many aspects of school life
  • An environment where parents and teachers support each other with the desire to help your child be successful
