The Australian Centre for Montessori Studies (ACMS) is a national organisation committed to providing quality training to the Montessori teaching community, and to those interested in becoming qualified in the Montessori method.

There are basically two components to teaching qualifications within Montessori, one being what is mandated by the government and the other being the Montessori pedagogical training required by a Montessori school/centre. We deliver courses for both, for Montessori Assistants and Montessori Teachers (Directors/Directresses).
