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.
Montessori Teachers College is a CCMA Montessori Teacher Training Organization member. CCMA Montessori Teacher Training Organization members are required to be AMI or MACTE accredited. CCMA membership allows participation in professional development, connections with the greater Montessori community, and support for the life-long benefits of Montessori education for every child in Canada.
Today there are over 110 Montessori schools in the CCMA organization ranging in size from an enrollment of 30 children to larger schools of over 700 students. Infant Toddler, Early Childhood, Elementary and Adolescent programs are all represented within CCMA schools.
