As we come to the close of 2012, NAMC is getting ready for an exciting new year with Montessori! As a way to kick off 2013, we will be doing some maintenance on our blog. Not only will the site have a cleaner, easier to read look, we have worked hard to make it easier to navigate. You will be able to find more interesting and relevant articles with less hassle.

We kindly ask that you bear with us through the course of today- December 31st, 2012. You may see some parts of the site out of place temporarily, as we switch over to our new layout. We thank you for your patience and are looking forward to your feedback!

Construction should be mostly completed in time for you to celebrate with us as we begin 2013! From all the staff at NAMC, we wish you and yours a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.
