Ongoing membership in Montessori Europe (ME), as a person or as an institution, is an important means of supporting our mission and strengthening the ties between Montessori professionals working in Europe.

As a member, you benefit from a reduced rate to our yearly congress, free access to our resources online, and you have the opportunity to join a growing community of Montessori Educators all over Europe.
Revenues from membership fees support our networking in the form of managing the working groups, financing travel costs and such.
