A Response to COVID-19: CCMA is a professional association, not a regulatory body and cannot respond with one statement or policy for all school members. CCMA is staying in touch with member schools during these times. Each CCMA Montessori school is independent and has a different license from the appropriate provincial or territorial licensing authority. Some schools are privately owned and some are not for profits. During the time when the physical locations are closed, each individual school is independently making decisions about programs they are able to implement, their staff, their fees and their tuition.
