The goals of the Montessori Education Society of Savannah are:

  1. Provide support and resources that allow Montessori institutions to deliver an authentic experience in the Savannah, GA area.
  2. Provide opportunities and events for the community of Savannah, GA at large to learn more about Montessori education, methods, and values.

Our 5 Year Action Plan is:

  1. Raise funds to pay for the full MACTE credentialing of teachers at the largest Montessori school in Savannah: Charles Ellis Montessori Academy, a public magnet school.
  2. Provide free Montessori information sessions to the community at large about ways they can use Montessori methods and philosophies outside of the classroom.
  3. Introduce Montessori concepts to the broader community through educational events and other opportunities.

In order to accomplish our plan our current Projects are:

  1. Montessori Credentialing of Teachers at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy
  2. Community Education
