Myth #6: All Montessori schools are the same.

Lacking a trademark or patent, Montessori’s name can be misused and misleading. Some organizations, such as the Association Montessori International (AMI), have safe-guarded her lectures and work by certifying its teachers and schools with rigorous training and consultations.

This prestigious AMI status is one way for parents to know that a teacher or a school has the full understanding of the Montessori principles. The materials are timeless: around the world and across a century, the materials have withstood the test of time. Affiliations.
