MACTE On-Site Verification Exercise at Greensprings Montessori Centre (GMC), Gbagada Lagos
Greensprings Montessori Centre (GMC), Gbagada Lagos has been functioning as a Montessori Teacher training Centre since 2008 by organising 3-Day annual Easter Montessori workshop. GMC became a full-fledged Montessori teacher training Centre in 2016 and has been training Adult learners for the award of International Diploma in Montessori education.
A historic occasion was witnessed between Wednesday 25 and Saturday 28 October 2017 when we hosted Dr. John Moncure, Mrs Marie Therese Bishay and Ms Ruth Ogaga – the On-Site Verification Team (OSVT) sent by Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) at the Centre. The OSVT interviewed the Management staff, Faculty and Adult learners were; documents were verified, a lecture session at the Centre was observed and a tour of Pre-school sessions at the Anthony and Lekki Campuses took place.
The OSVT written report of GMC accreditation exercise has been submitted to MACTE for review and consideration. The visit was remarkable, inspiring and professionally rewarding.
