Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning Commissioner Tours Montessori Schools

Via AMI-Staff on facebook: Bright From the Start Commissioner Visits Roswell School.

The Roswell Patch, a community news website, highlights a visit to Village Montessori School (AMI, 3-12) by Bright From the Start, also known as the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.  It’s a nice piece of Montessori in the news, with great quotes about independence and respect for the child, a reference to Atlanta’s vibrant Montessori community, and a mention of AMI.

There’s more here than just the school visit, though. Apparently, this is part of  “a tour of exemplary Montessori schools” by the department with the collaboration of Atlanta’s Montessori Administrator’s Group. The article cites MAG’s work with the Department bringing Montessori programs into Georgia’s Quality Rated program for schools and child care centers that exceed licensing requirements.
