A Home for
Public Montessori

We sustain Montessori in the public sector through a community network, teacher training, school support, and field-tested tools.

Join us in our mission to bring

More Montessori to More Children

More and better public Montessori schools will give children hit hardest by racism, poverty, and structural inequality access to this transformational model.

We Do

We support and sustain public Montessori schools, leaders, and teachers, and we help grow and connect a national public Montessori community.

Children deserve schools that foster human flourishing. Public Montessori brings transformational education to all.

We Do It

  • Direct support for school leaders and teachers
  • Accessible, public-oriented teacher training
  • Field-tested assessment and coaching tools

Breakthrough Montessori

In 2013, we launched Breakthrough Montessori Public Charter School in Washington DC., to bring fully-implemented, accessible Montessori education to an underserved population.

With support and resources from NCMPS, Breakthrough now serves a diverse and growing community of more than 200 children from age three through second grade.

Our Networks

Supporting a Community

Personal outreach draws a diverse community together in a web of connection.

NCMPS supports communication across the public Montessori community with several organizations offering newsletters, teacher training and employment resources and a database of Montessori schools.
