For 24 years, The Montessori Foundation has nurtured, inspired, and supported the development of strong, successful Montessori schools around the world.
Our Montessori Leadership Institute offers an ongoing series of free weekly webinars for Montessori school leaders.
Each week we host interesting guests or explore issues of importance to Montessori schools and educators everywhere. The sessions are live and we take questions from the audience.
Often our focus will be on an issue that we feel deserves a fresh look (one example: The fundamental importance of the extended uninterrupted work cycle.), or a new solution to longstanding concerns.
We cover a wide-range of topics from Montessori All-Day to Brain Research, Montessori in the Public Sector to concerns about government regulations that limit the independence of nonpublic Montessori schools.
We explore summer programs, orienting new children, increasing parent engagement, recruitment, online marketing, Montessori advocacy, charter schools, introducing older students into Montessori, Montessori middle and high schools, and much more.
The webinar series is held Wednesdays at 1:00 PM East Coast Time (GMT -5)
If you wish to participate, you will need to register for the series. You will receive reminder emails.
When you register for the free series you can join in on any of the live sessions. We welcome suggestions for new topics or prospective guest presenters.
Webinars are recorded, and the link to each session is posted within a few days.
We offer free participation in the live webinar to up to 1,000 registrants.
The recordings of the live webinars become part of the member's resource center of the International Montessori Council (IMC). IMC members can view the entire collection of recorded sessions later, and, by logging in to their IMC members account, share them locally to colleagues.
The International Montessori Council is the membership organization for Montessori schools and educators formed in partnership with the Montessori Foundation. Membership is affordable and the support and benefits are outstanding. Like the Montessori Foundation, the IMC is here to help, and if you do not already belong, we invite you to join. The IMC provides comprehensive support, but many schools belong to both the IMC and one of the other Montessori societies, finding value in each at a cost that they can afford.
