NAMTA Conferences and Professional Development Opportunities


The NAMTA conference series provides an opportunity for Montessori practitioners to deepen their understanding of Montessori practice from birth through adolescence. Speakers include Montessori trainers, contemporary authors, scholars, and researchers who present the continuum of Montessori’s living tradition.


In addition to conferences NAMTA offers professional development opportunities. The NAMTA/AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies provides a variety of implementation models for teachers who wish to know more about adolescents, their needs and psychological characteristics, as well as Montessori principles and authentic practices. Since November 2010, The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) has recognized this program as the current AMI adolescent pedagogical offering.


Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM is for both Montessori teachers without administrative background and administrators without Montessori background. Each program track allows time for discussion, problem solving, and creation of a specific plan for each participant's school.


Event announcements, including materials, are mailed approximately four to six weeks prior to each conference. Online usually begins about four to six weeks prior to the conference; check for full conference schedules and materials. To be included on the mailing list, contact NAMTA with your name, address, and the conference in which you are interested.

Welcome back and thank you for your patience as we have been transitioning to new locations, beginning new work with new staff, and refreshing our processes.

Our online store and archives have successfully moved into a new space where all of our publications and media, both for sale and for research via the archives, are housed in one large office/warehouse. Along with the refreshed processes and efficiency this new space brings, we will be implementing new ordering and payment systems for the NAMTA store and updating other member services. We are now filling back orders and will be ready to accept new orders by December 11th.

Our operations are now headquartered in Seattle and are being managed by NAMTA’s longtime president Jacquie Maughan. Please feel free to contact us at or call the Seattle office at 206-919-6349.

For additional news and updates, please see the note from the NAMTA officers.

Finally, be sure to mark your calendars and plan to attend our conference in Seattle/Tacoma on April 4-7, 2019. This conference will not only explore the most current approaches and uses of technology but will also inspire and enrich our understanding of maintaining our balance with the forces that keep us rooted and connected to humanity through the power of story, the natural world, and creativity. Check back soon for program and registration information.
