I worked for about 14 years with special needs and through all these years I was hearing about the Montessori method. I decided to take the diploma to understand more about the child secret world. While I was discovering the child's amazing world, I also discovered my inner peace and strength. It added so much for my personal and professional life.

At the Montessori Egyptian Center, we always emphasize the importance of continuing the learning process. We encourage self-development and growth, and work continually on providing workshops, refresher sessions, mini-courses, and assemblies for our graduates, as well as announcing any educational opportunities with trusted entities.
Also, we are always open to visiting graduates seeking support!
Q: What career path should I expect to follow?
Fresh-graduate Montessori directors/ directresses typically need three to five years in a quality Montessori classroom to be fully competent. Some directors/ directresses find lifetime fulfillment in the classroom, and some start their own schools.
Some graduates use their learning in different education, community support, and family support initiatives that are rapidly growing in Egypt.
Some, after 3-year experience in the classroom, engage in Montessori Teacher Education programs as study guides or instructors.
In the Montessori Egyptian Center, we provide apprenticeship for exemplary graduates.
