The Pacific Northwest Montessori Association is a catalyst for creating the united common voice required to advocate effectively for Montessori communities. It is our goal to bring together Montessori educators of the Northwest to work in excellence and prosperity; providing meaningful communication to our members and creating a strong Montessori community.
The mission of the Pacific Northwest Montessori Association is to encourage, support and advocate for excellent Montessori education, as well as unite Montessori communities throughout the Pacific Northwest.
PNMA is a non-profit professional organization, founded in 1962, comprised of teachers, interns, administrators, and schools promoting excellence and growth in Montessori education. We are dedicated to working harmoniously in supporting, nurturing, and connecting Montessorians from diverse training backgrounds across the Pacific Northwest.
The PNMA serves as a resource for individuals interested in learning more about the Montessori philosophy, and provides information for parents in the process of selecting a quality Montessori school. All Montessorians, administrators, directors, teachers, guides, friends, and supporters are invited to become members of the PNMA.
