    This is the start of the application process for Montessori School Verification. 

    • Once you have registered for the process you will be automatically emailed a digital copy of the Self-Study Manual and Form. If your school is AMS accredited or AMI/USA recognized, simply send a copy of your certificate and the contact information for your licensor to the verification chair. You only need to fill out the Self-study if you have not  gone through a process with AMS or AMI.
    • Follow the instructions for completing and submitting the form and required documents.
    • You will be contacted to schedule a Verifier visit after your self-study and required documents have been reviewed by the Verification Chair.
    • After the visit the Verifier will submit a report to the Verification Committee for review and approval at the next (monthly) PNMA board meeting.

    If there was ever a time in the history of Montessori education where it was imperative to establish and maintain a positive partnership with parents – the era of COVID is that time. More than ever, we need parents who can help us understand the needs and tendencies of the students we serve. More than ever, we need parents to understand how Montessori pedagogy can be applied appropriately at home. More than ever, we need active parent support in helping us keep our school communities safe, stable, and sustainable.

    Cultivating trust, transparency, and loyalty among parents requires Montessori guides and school leaders to create a “Relational Prepared Environment” with our families. There are specific strategies and steps, tools and techniques, for achieving this. We invite you to join Jonathan Wolff, international Montessori consultant, leadership coach, and author for a three session webinar series on parent relations, communications, conferencing, and conflict resolution.

    The series will include three content-rich, pre-recorded videos, each of which will be followed by a live, interactive ZOOM session, in which participants will have an opportunity to pose questions, share ideas and resources, and plan how to apply their learning to specific situations and challenges with the parents in their classroom or school community. 

    • Session I - Building Trust, Transparency, and Loyalty with Parents 
    • Session II - How to Present Difficult and Delicate Information to Parents About Their Child 
    • Session III -  How to Respond to Unexpected Parent Communications, Accusations, and Conflict 


    This workshop will be recorded and made available to registered attendees.
