We are a non-profit membership association with a mission to advocate for Montessori education through community outreach, political action and ongoing partnership with any and all individuals looking to gain a better understanding of how Montessori works in our world today.
Founded in 2012, the Colorado Montessori Association was started by a group of Montessorians who saw a need for our pedagogy to be officially represented in the state of Colorado. We established ourselves with a dedication to ensuring that Montessori has a robust and committed voice in Colorado. We seek to represent our members in a way that is cohesive and profound in order to ensure that our impact is realized through the work of government as well as the work of the dedicated individuals who choose Montessori methodologies in their daily interactions with others. The Colorado Montessori Association believes that every child deserves an education that is individualized and unique. We know that children do not need to be forced to learn, they simply need an opportunity to learn in a setting that encourages them to be curious, self-directed and a challenger of the status quo.read more
The Colorado Montessori Association is only as strong as its membership. We envision an organization that enables its members to communicate, share ideas, compare practices and philosophy, and in the process, enliven Montessori schools throughout the state. We hope to provide a forum for dialogue about our common belief in Montessori education. To become more involved, we invite you to participate in the teacher, administrator or public school online forums, attend CMA events, send us photos of your schools and articles for the monthly newsletter, and give us your suggestions. This is your organization.read more
