Who are we?

Public Association “Montessori Ukraine”

Due to the war in Ukraine, children can’t live their life, can’t enjoy their childhood. Families are leaving their homes, moving cities and counties, losing friends and family members every day. Every day is a challenge when there is war in your country.

We united into a powerful team of like-minded people in the spring of 2022, in response to the full-scale war in Ukraine, to ensure the support and development of the Ukrainian Montessori Community. Our team consists of Montessori educators, therapists, psychologists, school owners, and local manufacturers. We are open to cooperation and already established relationships with national and international organizations and government agencies, publishers, and patrons in order to fulfill our mission – spreading the Montessori method throughout Ukraine.

The war will end, and the community will remain.

Our Goals

Creation of the library

We are creating a Ukrainian-language library of Montessori materials. 4 books by Maria Montessori are currently in the process of translation, the first of which will be published on the website this year. We also translate articles by international experts and write unique articles by ourselves.

Spreading the Method

We spread Montessori education in Ukraine by cooperation with the state to prepare Montessori programs for public kindergartens, schools, universities, and orphanages. Peace education is in the progress of creation.

Materials and culture

We support Ukrainian Montessori craftsmen who create Montessori materials that reflect the depth and integrity of Ukrainian culture.

Support for children

We support internally displaced children in shelters, consult teachers, conduct educational activities, send humanitarian aid and educational materials.

Quality Montessori education

Create quality educational opportunities for parents and educators.

Schools support

We help schools to stay in touch with international colleagues they can bond with and that can support them.

Why it’s important?

According to the MoES, as of the end of 2022, 748 preschools, and more than 2400 educational facilities, including Montessori schools were damaged in Ukraine. Most of the Montessori schools are facing the possibility of closure due to the economic challenges created by war. This movie shows the united position of support from many Montessorians globally.

We believe that the world needs unity as never before to build up a strong, independent, and peaceful civilization. As Montessorians, our goal is to advocate for the educational model that will make it possible!
