Montessori 150

31 August 2020 is 150 years since the birth of Maria Montessori. Montessori was ahead of her time in her research, educational approach and pioneering work for social reform. The work of Montessori today continues to motivate people to change the world for the better and has impacted the lives of children and teachers for more than 110 years. 

2020 is a year to celebrate her amazing legacy of Montessori education, as well as her commitment to advocating for the human rights of the child, a cause which is continued through the work of the Educateurs sans Frontières. To mark the 2020 anniversary, a special event will be held in her birth place, Chiaravalle, Italy on 31 August 2020 and there will be a major international conference in Rome on 24 and 25 October 2020.

Montessori Australia will join Montessorians around the world to celebrate the 150 year anniversary in 2020 with our Montessori 150 Conference on 29 & 30 August 2020. See details here:  We plan to show photos and videos of these celebrations from the Australian Montessori Community.
