All of our accredited Montessori guides collaborate to ensure program integrity; each has the appropriate training, experience and commitment required to provide an authentic Montessori environment in their classroom and throughout the school. Classroom assistants, administrators and volunteers are all chosen to support Montessori values and help model appropriate behaviours.
