The accreditation process looks at how a setting delivers Montessori principles through its daily practice.

Montessori Apprentice Academy (MAA) Accreditation

We are proud to be Montessori Accredited with MAA!

In 2023, the MAA Montessori Accreditation was established with the goal of assessing nurseries’ adherence to Montessori principles and granting them the “true” Montessori Nursery label. Nurseries are required to undertake a two-part process to cultivate a Montessori culture deeply integrated into their environment.

The Montessori Inspector appointed by MAA conducts a thorough evaluation of various aspects, including Montessori staff training, professional development, work cycle implementation, and provision of well-resourced Montessori materials. The Montessori Inspector then prepares a comprehensive report following a full day visit to the nursery to observe Montessori practice, which is shared with the staff and parents.

Following successful completion of the accreditation, the nursery is awarded a logo valid for 3 years.
