The Montessori Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of Montessori education in the United States and abroad.

The Montessori Foundation works with the entire Montessori community, regardless of affiliation, as well as parents, educators, schools, and school systems that are interested in learning more about the insights, research, and approach pioneered by Dr. Maria Montessori.

The International Montessori Council (IMC) is an international organization of Montessori schools, the men and women who lead them, own them, or serve on their boards, and other organizations interested in supporting the goals of the IMC. As an independent Montessori professional and accrediting organization, the IMC serves the entire Montessori community.

The Montessori Family Alliance is a partnership of Montessori parents who want to learn more about Montessori and how to support their children at school and at home. It provides 24/7 access to expert information, access to free webinars, and aims to unify the Montessori community through many varied resources.


Administrators: Give Your Families the Gift of Connection

The gift of Montessori Family Alliance (MFA) membership is an extension of the love and trust you hold for your parent community. Membership in the Montessori Family Alliance strengthens relationships between families and schools. In a time when staff and administrators are overworked, the MFA can help ease the burden of parent education during these trying times. From the countless online benefits and the print edition of Tomorrow’s Child magazine, membership provides your parents access to all their Montessori questions.


Mobile Friendly Digital Edition of Tomorrow’s Child Magazine

The digital edition of Tomorrow’s Child is here. We have incorporated your feedback and developed a user experience that is easier to read, especially on mobile devices. We will continue to provide the flipbook-style PDF for those who prefer to see the magazine layout as it is in print, and we hope you will enjoy the reader-friendly version as well.

Remember, you will need to be logged in to your MFA account to view the magazine. Don’t have one? No problem! You can sign up easily by clicking here and be reading Tomorrow’s Child in 5 minutes along with all the other resources offered by the Montessori Family Alliance.
