Association Montessori Internationale – AMI
AMI was founded in 1929 by Dr. Maria Montessori and was operated by her son and close co-worker Mario Montessori for more than 50 years.
At present, AMI is managed by an international board with Mr. Philip O´Brien as chairman.
AMI is an affiliate of UNESCO. Cooperation with UNESCO has increased in recent years. Among other activities, AMI’s 24th international congress was held at UNESCO’s head office in Paris during the summer of 2001.
