Exciting News for Colorado Montessori Schools
A State Validation Program
This voluntary program is the way for you to show parents that your school offers their children a quality Montessori education that they can trust!
This “validation” of your programs lets the Colorado Department of Human Services know that your school meets standards set by the Montessori community in Colorado.
Colorado Montessori Association is sponsoring this program for all early childhood classrooms (other levels will be added soon) in both public and independent Montessori schools in our state.

Montessori Teacher Mingle
We are delighted to have Megan Witucki and Anne Prosser of Compass Montessori on October 20 th to present a hands-on, assemblage art lesson. The origin of this art form dates to the cubist constructions of Pablo Picasso in 1912. In Paris in the 1920’s Alexander Calder, Picasso, Jose De Creeft and others began making fully 3-dimensional works from metal scraps, found metal objects and wire. In the U.S. one of the earliest and most prolific assemblage artists was Louise Nevelson, who began creating her sculptures from found pieces of wood in the late 1930’s. Nevelson’s art appears puzzle-like and intricate. In this mingle You will be encouraged to discover ways to layer objects, create patterns and incorporate a variety of textures to create your own unique piece of art. Space is limited so be sure to register early!
