Welcome to the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board site.

Here you can find out more about the MEAB scheme, which aims to ensure that all schools using the Montessori name offer high quality education and care to children.

MEAB was introduced in 2008 by the Montessori St. Nicholas charity. The scheme was developed with the assistance of the British Accreditation Council and Independent Schools Inspectorate. During the academic year 2010-11 our assessors undertook training with the Chartered Institute of Educational Assessors.

The accreditation process looks at how a setting delivers Montessori principles through its daily practice. MEAB reports are available on this website and should be read alongside the school's Ofsted report which covers statutory compliance in England. Relevant national regulations should be considered for schools operating outside England.

There are many benefits of MEAB accreditation for Montessori schools and for their teachers, prospective parents and of course the children who attend.
