Mission Statement



We are a group of committed Montessori teachers at the Elementary and Secondary level in the public school system in British Columbia. As part of our efforts to create a strong Montessori community, we hold yearly conferences, provide resources, facilitate workshops and advocate for our members


The Montessori PSA aims to develop, enhance, enrich and support our Montessori practice.  We can accomplish this by enhancing connections, fostering mentorship; promoting more local (in-school, district, provincial) professional development workshops; acknowledging our needs as well as recognizing our achievements; and, celebrating our purpose – our Montessori directed teaching.

“Children display a universal love of mathematics, which is par excellence the science of precision, order, and intelligence.”

“Let us give the child a vision of the whole universe. . . for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”

---Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential



Language Development "Not only does it fuse men into groups and nations, but it is the central point of difference between the human species and all others. Language lies at the root of that transformation of the environment that we call civilization." Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind
