We are situated at St. Bridget's Convent, 85, C.W.W.Kannangara Mawatha, Colombo 07. The legacy to carry on the Montessori training was handed over to the Good Shepherd Sisters by Dr. Maria Montessori herself in 1944.

We are the only authorized AMI Montessori Training Centre in Sri Lanka, affiliated to the Association Montessori Internationale in Amsterdam in the Netherlands.

Our Course is of a two year duration at the end of which the successful candidate is offered an internationally recognized Diploma from the Association Montessori Internationale in the Netherlands.
