Montessori Accreditation - The Accreditation Scheme For Schools

Print versionPrint version

MEUK Accreditation

Montessori Accreditation is the name of the ME(UK) school accreditation scheme. It is a quality assurance process that is designed to help you continuously develop and enhance the Montessori practice in your school. It consists of an ongoing programme of support, guidance and improvement for you and all your members of staff which will ensure that your school continues to embody the highest Montessori standards.

The Montessori Accreditation process is an affirming one and the length of time it takes to attain varies according to the different needs of each school. It involves self-appraising your current practice, with the support of a Mentor, which highlights areas to focus on and develop in preparation for the visit by the Montessori Accreditation Assessor.

Montessori Accreditation is not an inspection and will never replace your Ofsted inspection. In fact, it is quite the opposite. We aim to facilitate your growth as a Montessorian by highlighting the great aspects of your practice and offering new ideas and interpretations to ensure that your Montessori environment is achieving the very best it can for each and every one of your children.
