About AMI

The vision of Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) is to support the natural development of human beings from birth to maturity, enabling them to become the transforming agents in society leading to a more 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.

AMI will use its internationally recognised authoritative voice regarding the unique nature of childhood and natural human development to advocate for the rights of children and adults to have access to nurturing, developmentally appropriate, educational environments. AMI will do this by preserving the legacy of Maria Montessori’s vision whilst continuing to innovate, increasing the impact and reach of Montessori principles and practice upholding AMI quality standards and reaching out to collaborate and partner with communities and organisations who share our vision.
