Annual Report 2019

Friday 10th July 2020

Welcome to our 2019 Annual Report that explores some of the innovative work done in the spirit of the pioneering work of Maria Montessori.

We were delighted, in AMI’s 90th year, to celebrate the continued relevance and genius of our founder, Maria Montessori. Our focus during this birthday year was to continue our commitment 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. Following the example of Maria Montessori, we continued to be guided by the children, continued in the preparation of adults committed to creating supportive environments and continued on our path of reform in education.

It remains our great privilege to continue pioneering and influencing the climate in society so it may fully implement the revolutionary principles and practice of the Montessori approach, helping to create a more equitable and just society.
