OUR HISTORY

Montessori Educational Programs international (MEPI) was founded in 1995 by a group 8 representatives of teacher education programs interested in promoting peace through authentic Montessori education and practice. Dr. Helen Billings, an inspiring leader in Montessori education, was instrumental in guiding this organization’s formation. Through her global network, she encouraged these 8 MEPI founders, along with countless others, to adopt the Montessori philosophy into lives and especially in their work as educators. To this purpose, MEPI offers education programs across the US, and in 7 foreign countries. In addition, MEPI insures cooperation with MACTE by having a seat on their board, and working in conjunction with MACTE through periodic reassessment and revision of policies, procedures, standards and criteria.
