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).

The Institute is now able to offer a diverse range of teacher education programmes including those offered in cooperation with Curtin University.
The Institute is operated by an executive of Montessori professionals, with considerable experience in Montessori education in the Australian community.
This exciting new organisation is lifting the profile of Montessori education within South Australia and providing National and International links to similar associations and individuals. It aims to attract the support of a large network of teachers, educational organisations, parents and individuals who support the Montessori Ethos.
