Graduate Testimonial

In 2015, I completed the MACTE Accredited Montessori Teacher Certification Course with Newborough Teacher Training Institute. What a year it was!

Every week, each class was full of amazing information and interesting presentations. The teachers who lecture and present materials are so knowledgeable that you can't help but learn so much from them.

Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, I was excited to come to class. I loved finding out what we would be covering each night.

Newborough's director, Sybil Taylor is fabulous. I can't say enough about how wonderful and helpful she is. Sybil and the lecturers make the course easy to follow and provide the right amount of information to make each class extremely informative.

I have and will recommend Newborough to anyone wishing to study Montessori. I loved every minute of my course and would go back to class in a 'heart beat' for a refresher.
