We are very close to having ALL of our lead classroom teachers fully certified! MESS provides stipends to help our teachers with the costs of living on the road to attend training and we do that through the generous financial support of our Montessori community. 

Please know that all money donated goes directly into the hands of our teachers who are spending weeks of their summer attending training uncompensated. 

If you would like to support our efforts, you can make a donation via Paypal using the button above, or send a check made out to MESS to: 134 E. 44th Street, Savannah, GA 31405.

Please let us know where we can send a receipt for tax purposes.  We are a 501(c)3 organization and all donations are tax-deductible.


Check out these smiling faces! Recently, these wonderful teachers received the American Montessori Society Elementary 1 & 2 Credential. This is the culmination of YEARS of work and HUNDREDS of hours given by our dedicated teachers. If you’ve supported MESS, you helped make this happen!
