HKMRDA has been actively promoting Montessori philosophies and education to the local Hong Kong and Chinese community.  Several hundreds of seminars were held during these years introducing the Montessori approach of education.  We have left no stone unturned in the localization of Montessori educational method in Hong Kong, Macau and Mainland China. Since 2012, HKMRDA has organized teacher education programmes in Hong Kong. This is a great opportunity to raise Hong Kong early childhood education’s educational status to an international standard. We will continue our mission by nurturing more parents and teachers for the contribution to the society.
