As the Principal College of the MMI Group, MMI London presides over the curriculum and delivery of Montessori in all of MMI’s international training schools and pre-schools. MMI London is also the master franchisor of MMI Egypt, MMI Kenya and MMI Nigeria.
A subsidiary of the MMI Group, MMI Malaysia was the Group’s first foray abroad. MMI Malaysia currently operates a teacher training centre together with seven pre-schools in Malaysia’s bustling state of Selangor.
MMI has entered a joint venture in Thailand to develop the Montessori Method of Education. A company called Modern Montessori International (Thailand) Ltd was formed to refer to this need. MMI Thailand which is located in a prime district, in Bangkok has earned its name as a boutique pre-school with its state- of- the art facilities.
Currently MMI appointed two unit franchisees that extend both teacher training courses and child development services. In 2006, MMI appointed MMI Menteng as our first franchisee. In 2008, MMI collaborated with MMI Pantai Indah Kapuk. Both Franchisees are located in the subdistricts of Central Jakarta.
The latest frontier of MMI international expansion is Vietnam. MMI has bought 20,000 square feet of land to build a preschool in Binh Duong, a rapidly growing province north of Ho Chi Minh City, where two Vietnam Singapore Industrial Parks are located.
In 2003, a joint venture partnership between MMI and India’s influential Jaipuria Group, MMI India is one of the Group’s two South Asian representations. It has its own building in Gurgaon as well as schools in Kozhikode and various parts of Delhi.
In 2004, MMI established MMI Sri Lanka Pvt Ltd as a joint venture. MMI Sri Lanka’s primary objective is to raise the local standard of Montessori preschool education; it has plans to develop 30 centres in Sri Lanka over the next 5 years.
