“Their program opened my eyes to the wonderful, beautiful, AMAZING world of the Montessori philosophy. With their guidance and education I found a part of myself I never knew existed before. Not only are students of this program learning the Montessori philosophy, they are also embarking on a journey of self discovery. Their philosophical teachings align with that of Maria herself and are put into practice through following the child and his desires. The staff are amazing and extremely passionate, intellectual, and overall genuinely loving towards everyone that comes in their doors. I wouldn’t be where or who I am today without all their amazing support and guidance. Thank you so much GCCME!” ~ Juli Taylor, GCCME Alumni

“This program has changed my life as a teacher. I came into this program as a traditional teacher and through this process have been able to learn a totally new method. It has been the most rewarding process to see the Montessori Philosophy work within my classroom! The students in my room are now able to work independently and be successful! It is a breath of fresh air. Through the support of staff and the other students at GCCME I have grown so much as a teacher. I just cannot say enough good things about this program!” ~ Christina Freund, GCCME Alumni

“A great school to learn about Montessori Philosophy. Their faculty are wonderful, caring people who truly believe in the Montessori Method. The Professional Development workshops in the summer and during the year are a great way for a season teacher to renew their spirit and dedication to the principals and practices of Montessori education!” ~ Meri Fox, Director of Maple Knoll Child Development Center, GCCME Advisory Panel and GCCME Alumni
