What is AMI?

The mission of Association Montessori Internationale is to support the natural development of the human being from birth to maturity, enabling children to become the transforming elements of society, leading to a harmonious and peaceful world. 

AMI education provides an environment that supports natural development, enabling children to develop the fundamental skills they need to become happy and fulfilled adults who contribute to society. Montessori schools promote hands on, self-paced, collaborative, joyful learning. Children in Montessori follow their interests, wherever that passion leads; giving them strong academics, leadership, self-discipline, responsibility, independence, initiative and a lifelong love of learning. AMI education implements Montessori as it was originally established by Dr. Maria Montessori in 1929 and improved upon by over 100 years of innovation informed by practice. Rigorous teacher training and credentialing make sure that AMI Montessori works in every setting and for every child. AMI’s fidelity to the highest standards of Montessori ensures that teaching is tied to a fundamental understanding of child development—and that each child’s distinct personality and independence are nurtured throughout their educational journey.
