A National Organization for Montessori Schools in 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. CCMA’s accreditation process maintains standards and ensures CCMA accredited schools are accountable to each other, to parents and to the public. Today there are more than 100 CCMA accredited schools, ranging in size from 30 students to 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 by offering professional support and promoting public awareness of authentic Montessori schools.
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 touch 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.
