Frequently Asked Questions

How do I apply to a Montessori Teachers College Program?

Do I qualify for your programs?

Our programs require a high school diploma or equivalent to enrol. We recommend learners also have a College or University degree, as this will help to prepare them for the rigors of the program, but this is not required. Applicants also need to be 18 years of age or older and be proficient in English, as shown by a passing grade on the English Language Oral and Written Assessment.

How can I pay my tuition?

Tuition can be paid monthly in installments or in a single lump sum, both of which include a $500 deposit. Monthly payments are made at the start of each month. Arrangements can be made for alternate payment structures, please contact the Registrars Office at for assistance. Costs vary by program; please consult the individual program pages for a breakdown of costs and how they can
be paid.

Are you a fully accredited teacher training program?

Absolutely! We are certified with the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) and provide our Adult Learners with a MACTE seal on their Diplomas upon graduation.

How does the Practicum Internship work?

Learners are tasked with assisting and observing proceedings in a real Montessori classroom with age ranges relevant to the program they are enrolled in. Learners work with one on one with an assigned Field Supervisor to document and report their hours in the classroom. Please note that time spent assisting the growth and development of the children is of critical importance, thus some hours may not count towards the required total number of practicum hours, such as camps, extracurricular events, recess, or breaks, among others. Learn more by consulting our program pages on this website.

How much homework is typically assigned in the programs?

As the programs utilize a hybrid in-person/online model, much of the work is done asynchronously, meaning at home on your own schedule. Learners are provided with a set of resources and materials to read, complete and test their knowledge at their own pace on a week by week basis within a given module. Estimates of asynchronous hours are provided on each of the program pages.

Are your programs fully online?

Our diploma programs have approximately 17 in-person practical review days where learners are given the opportunity to work hands-on with Montessori materials and learn directly from our team of experienced instructors. These practical review days occur throughout the program on either Saturday or Sunday from 9am to 5pm. Our certificate programs are completed entirely online through self-directed learning.

What does the job market look like for Montessori-trained teachers?

Demand for Montessori-trained teachers is high! Most of our learners find work in a Montessori school immediately after graduation or while they are in the course. While we do not guarantee employment following graduation, please consult our job board here for an indication of the demand for teachers in Ontario.
