NAMTA's purpose is to maintain Montessori traditions, and at the same time, to be on the cutting edge of innovative education. Accordingly, we provide the medium for study, interpretation, and improvement of Montessori education.
NAMTA does not recommend particular schools.
Visit the school, observe the classroom in action. Ask if the school is affiliated with any Montessori organization. Ask what kind of training the teachers have. Most of all, talk to your child's prospective teacher about his or her philosophy of child development and education to see if it is compatible with your own.
