2019 General Assembly of the Montessori Association of France

On Saturday morning, January 19, the General Assembly of the Montessori Association of France (AMF) was held at rue Claude Bernard in Paris.

An opportunity for all members to meet and take stock of the past year.

Among the many elements presented, the strong vitality of the Montessori network in France is worth mentioning: in 2019, the AMF had more than 700 members, with strong growth, reflecting the progress of Montessori education in French society.

According to a survey conducted by the Foundation for the School, 203 schools claim to be Montessori educational institutions to date: the AMF is in contact with 171 of them, and 113 are members of the association.

The first challenge for the association is therefore to federate the community of educators, who often find themselves a little alone after their Montessori training.

Among the actions implemented by the association, the School Directors’ Day brought together 43 people, the equipment loan programme in partnership with the Montessori Foundation of France benefited 3 schools in 2018 for a total amount of 18K€, and the association’s Facebook page now has 6700 subscribers, 1200 of whom receive the monthly newsletter.
