OMA MEMBERSHIP

Oregon Montessori Association offers membership to schools, training centers, and individuals.

We’d love to have you join OMA and be part of a regional network of Montessorians working to promote Montessori education in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Read on to learn more about our membership benefits and enroll today!

MEMBER BENEFITS

Membership to OMA means being a part of a vibrant and growing community of regional Montessorians. All members, which includes all staff at member schools, gain access to our media lending library and online resources; receive early access to the Forza Vitale!, our regular publication of articles by fellow Montessorians; and receive member rates on our workshops and lectures, as well as those of the Pacific Northwest Montessori Association, our sister group in Washington.

Individual members, teachers from member schools, and trainees from member training centers are added to our teacher email groups based on the level at which they're trained (Infant/Toddler, Primary, Elementary, Adolescent), and members at all levels are invited to stay connected via our community celebrations, social events, and outreach activities, as well.

All levels of membership support OMA in our ongoing regulatory and legislative work to advocate for Montessori education and support our children, schools, and communities.

Member Schools have the following additional benefits:

  • Access to our Admin, Office Staff, and Assistant/Support Staff email groups

  • Free job postings on our classifieds page

  • Promotion via our Find A School profile and map listing

  • Administrator access to the results of our biennial Benefits and Compensation Survey

  • And more!
