About MCI.

Montessori Centre International (MCI) is one of the UK’s leading providers of Montessori training to meet the needs of the Early Years communities in the UK and around the world.

What is Montessori building blocks

At Montessori Centre International (MCI) we strive to ensure that high-quality training is available regionally and internationally.

Our most recent development to support this initiative is the opportunity for host-centres to work with our support and guidance to prepare their own delivery models across the UK and overseas.

We’re thrilled that we have collaborated on the creation of the UK’s first International Montessori Institute, in partnership with Leeds Beckett University’s Carnegie School of Education. The Institute will have the UK’s first dedicated undergraduate, masters and PhD courses in Montessori education, the world’s first Professor of Montessori, and be a centre for quality research into Early Years and the Montessori approach in the UK.

To date, the Academic Team of the Montessori Group has trained over 9,000 Montessori educators. Through our partnership with Leeds Beckett University we are able to offer an authentic and highly-valued route into Higher Education

We also work with employers to support their own development of in-house training through programme design, delivery and consultancy.
