The social, economic and environmental challenges facing humanity require a more powerful approach to education. Montessori education nurtures global citizens and innovative leaders, poised to wisely shape and agilely respond to a very fast changing world. Ohio has long been a hub of Montessori innovation and is rich in individuals and organizations working tirelessly to strengthen Montessori schools and champion the needs of children. The Ohio Montessori Alliance (OMA) is a non-profit organization magnifying their efforts by galvanizing Montessori's grassroots success into a unified movement for children. All who feel touched by Montessori principles are invited to play their part in creating a future in which all children and communities have access to quality Montessori education.
