Dear Montessori Community School:  

 

The Montessori Foundation works tirelessly to promote the idea that education should be joyful, not a race to nowhere. The proof can be seen in Montessori classrooms, and in our Montessori graduates. Their success and satisfaction in their lives speaks volumes.

 

Since 1992, The Montessori Foundation has worked tirelessly to...

  • · Demonstrate that Montessori works 
  • · Prepare Montessori school leaders
  • · Support Montessori schools through times of challenge and transition
  • · Promote Best Practices in Montessori Education  
  • · Encourage collaboration and partnership throughout the Montessori community 
  • · Organize national programs for Montessori schools  
  • · Develop truly innovative Montessori teacher education  

Every year the Montessori Foundation participates in the 24-Hour Giving Partner Challenge. 

 

We only have one hour to go in this year's 24 Hour Giving Challenge. Families and friends around the world are lending their support to the schools, museums, theaters, and other organizations that have meant so much in their lives.

 

We need your help. Please join me in making an enthusiastic donation to The Montessori Foundation. 

 

Your contribution will support:

  • · The Montessori Education Research Institute
  • · The Montessori Peace Academy
  • · Tomorrow's Child and many other parent communication tools
