Montessori Collaborative Response and Resources 

Montessori School Financial Support Groups

In response to the huge outpouring of concern voiced from the many heads of school, business managers, board members, and owners, we are developing access to small group financial support sessions via ZOOM.  These sessions will provide support with financial strategies to those independentnonprofit or private schools needing financial crisis management support in the short term as we face this stressful and unprecedented assault on our schools’ ability to sustain. Together we can plan for ways to cope with the financial fears in these uncertain times and realize that together we will get through this. With these goals in mind, the small group coaching sessions will be for approximately 10-12 people per group who share similar concerns. The coaching sessions will be led by experienced mentors who have volunteered to support your school.
