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.
