Just for clarification, is VDOE going to require that Montessori Directors hold Montessori certification? Most qualified directors already hold a B.A./B.S and some hold a Master's degree as well which certainly qualifies them to direct an early childhood program when accompanied by Early Childhood administration experience. It would be difficult to ask a Director to go back to school for several months if they haven't already obtained a certificate and currently don't work in the classroom setting.
