ANGOLA — The Early Childhood program at Trine University’s Center for Montessori Education has earned Full Accreditation Initial status from the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education.
“By becoming accredited, the Center for Montessori Education at Trine University joins the ranks of top Montessori teacher education programs worldwide that prepare professional educators to enter the field of teaching at the highest level of quality and engage in continuous improvement,” said Laurie Stockton-Moreno, director of the Center for Montessori Education at Trine. “This accreditation demonstrates to schools and families that teachers and the children in their care receive the highest quality education.”
The MACTE Board of Directors voted to grant the status for a seven-year term to Trine’s program based on submission of an acceptable interim report.
Recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, MACTE accredits Montessori certification programs based on evidence that they prepare competent, caring, qualified professional Montessori educators and have the capacity to monitor and improve program quality.
Launched in 2020, the Center for Montessori Education at Trine University offers one-year Early Childhood and Elementary I training programs in Montessori education. Students also can earn a Master of Education in Montessori Early Childhood Education by completing the Montessori training coursework plus one additional TrineOnline course.
