NCFE CACHE has worked collaboratively with the Crossfields Institute to develop this specialist level 3 Early Years qualification. Montessori Centre International as a lead development partner, has also provided subject expertise and content in the development of this qualification.

In collaboration with NCFE CACHE, the Institute is responsible for the ongoing delivery, and centre quality assurance of this qualification. As specialist qualifications they have particular requirements which all centres must meet in order to gain qualification approval in terms of both staff expertise and resources.

MCI’s history can be traced back to the Montessori St Nicholas Centre which was founded in 1946 with the help of Maria Montessori, to provide Montessori teacher training courses in the UK. MCI aims to train educators who can work with children and those who support children to develop a sound foundation for sustainable, responsible citizenship from the earliest years of children’s development.
