About Us

The Michigan Montessori Society is an independent, non-profit organization whose goal is to promote, develop and disseminate the educational philosophy and principles of Maria Montessori, fostering their integration with the American educational and cultural environment. Through the support of the general and professional members, the Society continues to advance its goals. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Montessori education.

The Michigan Montessori Society offers to its members and affiliate schools a number of services. The Society sponsors two workshops each year, in the fall and spring of the academic year. The Society publishes a quarterly newsletter and a member directory is published each year in early spring. The newsletters and the member directory are e-mailed to each member.

If you are in need of any services, please contact the Michigan Montessori Society at 1-800-308-4899 or by e-mail through this site.
