The concept of Montessori Education Week was born in the late 1980’s in hopes of increasing awareness of Montessori education worldwide. In the late 1990s, this week reached national and international audiences and is now celebrated by several thousand Montessori schools in the US.
May River Montessori, founded in 1987, is celebrating 30 years of operation. Their mission is to develop and nurture the whole child to their fullest potential through the implementation of the Montessori Method and Philosophy so that the young child experiences the joy of learning in an environment in which intellectual, moral, spiritual, physical, and social growth flourish.
