I hope you and your family are having a wonderful holiday season filled with peace, love, and joy. Let us all strive to move toward Maria Montessori’s vision of peace through peace education.
Montessori Peace Inspiration
Unfortunately, peace is absent for too many this year. I think Maria Montessori’s words and examples of Montessori peace education are especially appropriate this holiday season.
“Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.”
– Maria Montessori
Maria Montessori was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1949, 1950, and 1951.
In case you haven’t seen it before, here’s a lovely video showing Montessori peace education at work:
“Educating for Peace: The Essence of Montessori”
And you’ll find some great thoughts about peace education here:
“What Children Teach Us About Peace”
Peace Education Resources
If you’d like ideas of how you can use Montessori-inspired peace education activities in your home or classroom, you’ll find lots of ideas in this roundup post: Montessori-Inspired Peace Education Activities.
You’ll find even more peace resources in my roundup of equality and peace resources for parents and teachers.

Wishing you peace, love, and joy today and always.
