“For several years we at Simbas have been privileged to have some students complete their work experience from the Progressive College. We found each student to have a high standard of knowledge of the Montessori Curriculum and also a willingness to partake in all group activities. We found a number of the students to be so impressive that we offered them a fulltime position. We look forward to the prospect of more students doing their work experience with us and we wish the Progressive College continued success in their training programmes. -Kim McCarthy

“I came to Ireland just to study in The College of Progressive Education and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. I am now working as a Montessori teacher and I love it. I am looking forward on going back to study with you guys as I loved my experience. Thank you for everything! “

“I completed the QQI Childcare course “level 6 major award in ECCE with Montessori “on a full time basis in 2013/2014. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the course and will remember my time with Progressive College fondly. I was initially worried starting the course as it was a career change and I would be a mature student. I had no reason to worry and I will never look back. The tutors were all a fantastic help from beginning to end and although it was hard work the tutors were there for us every step of the way. I loved learning with them and really felt like they were on the journey with us. The course coordinator, Karen, was a huge help and so welcoming and approachable when it came to queries or anything we needed. I found the work experience element to be a massive advantage as we got to really connect with the children over the year and it gave me the confidence when going into a job as I had learnt so much over the year and couldn’t wait to utilise my new skills.”

All in all I would recommend this course to anyone and I would say enjoy every minute because the year flies in.”

“ I just completed my Childcare course “Early Childhood Care & education with Montessori” with the college of progressive education. I cannot recommend them enough. Having never gone to college I found the whole experience daunting. The help, guidance and assistance of all the tutors and directors was excellent. The course itself was extremely in depth with excellent notes and tutorials.”
