The BA Hons Degree in Montessori Early Childhood Practice, validated by London Metropolitan University, has been developed to meet the demand in the work place for well qualified Montessori Early Childhood specialists who can demonstrate high levels of professional competence and apply knowledge and skills effectively in practice. It provides a degree level qualification for the Montessori community.
The focus and context for the study of early childhood is the distinct philosophy and pedagogy of Montessori practice, with the aim to develop reflective practitioners who are forward thinking, responsive and ready to engage in contemporary early years discourse.
The BA (Hons) Degree is offered full time over three years to new entrants. Full time students attend MCI 3 days per week and are in Professional Placement in a Montessori approved setting 2 days per week.
Applicants who have previously studied with us at MCI and have a Level 4 Diploma are eligible to gain direct entry to Year 2 (Level 5). Direct entry study can be full-time over 2 years or part time over 4 years.
Students are able to choose how much of the course to study online and how much in-person at MCI London. We have developed our blended learning approach using our innovative Virtual Learning Environment to support an international community of over 400 learners.
