Montessori Life

The magazine of the American Montessori Society.

Montessori Life Winter 2019Montessori Life is the official quarterly magazine of the American Montessori Society.

Articles on Montessori practice and pedagogy, along with articles offering practical ideas for the classroom and reflections from organization stakeholders, serve to provoke thought, promote professional development, and provide a forum for discussion of issues and ideas in the field. In addition, news of our member schools and teacher education programs, and details about upcoming events of interest, bring Montessori educators together as a collegial global community.

Montessori Life is published seasonally: winter (December), spring (March), summer (June), and fall (September).


A subscription to Montessori Life is a benefit of AMS membership. All members can download complete issues. In addition, members in the U.S. receive a print edition. Members outside the U.S. can purchase a print edition for an additional fee, along with their membership dues.

Everyone is welcome to read our “Montessori Parent” articles, a regular feature of the magazine.

For our friends in China, we offer these articles translated into Mandarin.
