About the Congress

Imagine attending an event where thousands of the world’s education professionals gather to explore the universal themes and unique facets of Montessori. Trainers, teachers, and administrators from nearly every continent will be united to celebrate, learn, and connect on their shared commitment to the work of Dr. Maria Montessori.

World-renowned speakers will present on powerful, groundbreaking topics. Dynamic exhibitions will feature Montessori’s revolutionary work, spanning over 100 years. Research presentations will reveal the potential plans for the universal child into the decades yet to come. To cap it all off, a fabulous Gala showcasing the best food, drink and entertainment your hosts can provide.

On behalf of Portland, Oregon’s thriving Montessori community, in collaboration with Cooperating Organizations from around the world and under the auspices of Association Montessori Internationale, the Montessori Institute Northwest invites all Montessorians to experience the International Montessori Congress in 2013!

With our boundless natural habitats, internationally renowned sustainability practices, and remarkable cultural and food scenes, the Congress in Portland, Oregon will be a must-attend event for anyone passionate about children’s education and learning to understand the nature of nature, the nature of the child and how the two influence one another. We hope that you will mark your calendars now to attend on July 31-August 3, 2013.

We will look forward to welcoming you warmly to the Congress.
