Michele Dows-Miller

MAI Accreditation Manager

Michele oversees the Montessori Accreditation International (MAI) (previously known as ‘Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board (MEAB)’) accreditation process. She liaises with settings, assessors and others in the MAI team, and presents reports to the Board. She was amongst the first cohort of MAI assessors to be appointed in 2008 and became Deputy Accreditation Officer in 2010. In 2011 she achieved Chartered Educational Assessor status. She set up Weyhill Montessori School in 1995 and led this setting through to 2014. Her previous employment included roles in educational publishing.

Michele’s priority is to ensure that MAI accreditation continues to offer independent, professional certification of quality Montessori practice globally, for the benefit of the child.
