The Montessori Family Alliance & Tomorrow's Child Magazine


Montessori is more than a School

MFA header

Montessori is much more than an educational approach or a network of schools that follow a distinctly different curriculum.

Montessori is a way of raising children, and creating a peaceful home.

For many of us, Montessori is a way of life.

The Montessori Family Alliance is a new international network of Montessori parents, teachers, and friends of Montessori. We focus on issues of children, Montessori education, and Montessori family life from infants and toddlers through teens.

The Montessori Family Alliance reaches out to parents like you who have interest in or a connection to the Montessori community, encouraging them to choose Montessori for their children, assisting the schools that they choose to help orient them to the principles of Montessori education, inspiring them to become more supportive and positively engaged in their children's school communities, and to share stories about how specific Montessori schools have designed new facilities and developed fascinating programs, sharing stories of present and former Montessori students,and continuing to share information about ongoing research that supports the effectiveness of Montessori education.
