WFIS has recognized the advocacy work of PNMA with monthly meetings hosted by DCYF leadership. The fruition of this work includes raising the standing of Montessori credentials and our curriculum in the Early Achievers system. Programs participating in this recognition of quality will have a shorter path to the points granted for Teacher education and for an approved curriculum. We thank WFIS for supporting our work and recognizing this milestone. PNMA member schools are encouraged to add or maintain membership in WFIS for more recognition and representation of Montessori schools.
