About Us

The New Hampshire Montessori Association is a non-profit organization, formed in February 2007 to create a forum for the continuing education of Montessori teachers in New Hampshire, and to promote the Montessori philosophy in our state. We are energized by the prospect of reaching out to the Montessori community as well as other educators and parents interested in the work of Dr. Maria Montessori.

In our busy lives and work we must take the time to build connections within our Montessori community. The simple experiences of talking with other teachers, visiting other schools, and participating in workshops rejuvenate us as we are reminded of the core meaning in our work as Montessori teachers, the legacy of Dr. Maria Montessori’s life. NHMA intends for this website to be a resource for the Montessori teachers of NH as well as a place to share knowledge and gain new perspectives in our ever changing profession.

“The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of the spirit.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

We are also dedicated to educating the budding Montessorian. Whether our website is visited by a new parent, grandparent, teacher, student or anyone beginning to explore the Montessori method, we invite everyone to explore this web page and gather information about the various Montessori schools in New Hampshire.
