Serbian Montessori Association was founded with the aim to promote Montessori pedagogy and quality Montessori education, based on authentic work of Dr. Maria Montessori, in Serbia.
The Association started activities on disseminating information about quality Montessori education and the importance of proper development from birth to adolescence through web sites for 0 - 3, 3 - 6 and 6 - 12/15 in Serbian.
Publishing Dr. Montessori's books in Serbian will provide parents, teachers and experts an opportunity to read Montessori in their own language. “Discovery of the Child” is the first book SMA is working on.
Several seminars related to Montessori for 0 - 3, and 3 - 6 age group levels were organized, and more are planned for the future. Seminars for 6 - 12 age level are part of a governmental programme for improving teachers' competencies. Seminars alsp serve as a preparation for establishing a possible future AMI Training Centre in Belgrade, which would lead to providing affordable quality Montessori training in Serbia and the region for the future.
Serbian Montessori Association officially became affiliated to AMI in April 2016.
