CCMA - Promoting Excellence in the Montessori Community
The Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) is an authority and voice for Montessori Administrators in Canada. Accredited Member schools and Applicant schools are accountable to CCMA for ensuring that qualifying programmes meet the standards and criteria established by the Council. CCMA recognizes teacher training institutes that meet the standards of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and/or the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE).
CCMA acts as a support group for Montessori Administrators, functioning as a unified voice in matters of negotiation with other agencies and as a source of knowledge and expertise on matters of school administration. Accredited Member schools and Applicant schools are supported by CCMA through workshops, conferences, regular meetings, and public awareness initiatives. CCMA evaluates programmes to assist in developing and maintaining the highest possible standards of Montessori education.
