Bournemouth Montessori Centre Limited Overview Image

Bournemouth Montessori Centre offers a fully rounded college-based course leading to a Montessori Diploma incorporating Early Years Educator. The aim of the Centre is to support students in becoming a trained Early Years professional (to teach children 0 - 6 years) with a deep insight into the Montessori Method of education and its practice. We believe that the training provides a unique and deeply enriching experience and is applicable in all early years environments.

The Montessori Method, an internationally recognised educational system, was developed by Dr Maria Montessori through a lifetime of observing and working with children.

Our courses have been carefully designed and are taught in small, supportive groups. We arrange all placements for our students whilst on the course.

Courses we offer:

Montessori Diploma incorporating Early Years Educator Full Time 

Montessori Diploma incorporating Early Years Educator Part Time

  • Montessori Diploma incorporating Early Years Educator over two years (suitable for students - EASL / International / additional needs)

  • Montessori Diploma (only) Part Time

Bournemouth Montessori Centre opened in January 1992 as a Montessori accredited training provider. It soon expanded to include our accredited Children's House (0 to 5). Students with children within our Children's House are eligible for a discount although places are limited.

Our building is a spacious and airy Victorian villa with large and sunny study rooms encompassing a beautiful accredited Montessori Children's House. We have a private study room, student sitting room and kitchen and library facilities. We have free wifi. The Montessori college rooms have a full range of Montessori activities and materials for you to access.


A Montessori qualification from Bournemouth Montessori Centre opens up a world of opportunities that will last you a lifetime. By the end of your time with us, you will have all the tools to be a confident Early Years Practitioner.

The courses aim to provide students with a complete knowledge and understanding of Dr. Maria Montessori's philosophy and practice and also current legislation. These courses are of interest to people of all ages who wish to find out about the Montessori Method. Past students have become Montessori teachers; started Montessori schools of their own; gone abroad to teach; become nannies in the UK; become classroom support; have volunteered in third world countries or put their Montessori knowledge to good use in their chosen profession.
