Montessori Conference in China

The International Symposium on Montessori Education (ISME), organized by the Chinese Montessori Society (CMS) and the American Montessori Institute (AMI), serves as a springboard for new ideas and fresh connections. As an annual conference since 2006, every year, thousands of Montessorians from all over the world meet together in China to share experiences and information, create new bonds and renew old ones, and embrace their enthusiasm for the Montessori Movement. China has been becoming the biggest countries of Montessori education. Hundreds of thousands of schools in China are sharing the benefits of Montessori education with others. How to create a new and scientific Montessori method of education combining with the traditional Chinese educational philosophy and cultures is becoming a big challenge for Montessorians. This is why AMI has been to China.

Up to the date, ISME has been held 9 times, respectively,  in Jinan (2006), Shanghai (2007), Qingdao (2008), Guangzhou (2009), Qingdao (2010), Dalian (2011), Qingdao (2012), Qingdao (2013), Qingdao (2014). ISME conferences are held in different cities each year in China.  More information, please visit CMS Meetings.

The 10th ISME conference will be held in Hangzhou, China, 2015.
