Association Montessori Internationale

Association Montessori Internationale Logo.

The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), based in The Netherlands, has a unique role as custodian of the history of the Montessori movement, maintaining the integrity of Maria Montessori’s legacy. 

AMI’s mission is to support the natural development of the human being from birth to maturity, enabling children to become the transforming elements of society, leading to a harmonious and peaceful world.

  • AMI is identified and sought after nationally and internationally as the cultivator of Montessori philosophy and pedagogy.
  • AMI is recognised internationally as an authoritative voice regarding the unique nature of childhood, natural human development and the rights of the child.

ISMS is a member of AMI and accordingly, aligned in our vision and values. ISMS prefers to employ classroom Directors who are Montessori qualified through Montessori Australia Foundation (MAF) endorsed AMI courses offered either in Australia or abroad.
