The Montessori method has been making inroads into Nigeria in small pockets for several decades and in the last decade has grown to become a force to be reckoned with.
In 2007, AMEN was birthed, spearheaded by Mrs. Adebola Atoyebi of Heritage House Montessori School and teacher education program. Working with other like- minded professionals, it kicked off with an inaugural meeting and a lecture. However, there was a lull in the activities of the organization until recently, when Montessorians were once again confronted with the need to work as a unit. The organization is being re-birthed, with a new executive.
