This programme is delivered by our sister college The College of Progressive Education and is designed to equip the learners with the knowledge, skills and competencies to work independently as a Montessori teacher, room leader or supervisor under the ECCE scheme, with a primary focus on the Montessori Method of Education. Successful graduates will be qualified to work as Montessori teachers and work with children from the age of 0 – 6 years, in a range of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) settings and or to progress to higher education and training.  The programme is delivered on a blended learning basis. 

The programme provides learners with a comprehensive knowledge of the Montessori Method of Education.  It develops a deep understanding of the theories behind the method, the purpose of the specific didactic Montessori materials and the skills to support children’s learning in an ECCE setting especially in relation to the holistic development and well-being of the child while at the same time valuing diversity and fostering equality and inclusion.  Learners acquire the necessary skills to plan, implement and evaluate a Montessori environment in line with Montessori philosophy and with reference to the Aistear framework and Siolta principles.  Integral to the programme is work placement where learners are enabled to put into practice what they learn through their studies.
