Building Community with Montessori in Mind
EMAS Foundation is a charitable trust (SC046784). It was created as an umbrella body for the promotion of the Montessori approach across Scotland, beginning with communities in Edinburgh and the Lothians. The Foundation operates three main project areas:
- Development of a bursary and scholarship fund to support access to education at Edinburgh Montessori Arts School.
- Development of a fund that supports access to therapeutic use of the arts for children and young people. In 2018/19 the Foundation sought funds to support the provision of an Artist in Residence working in the school. Further work is being done in developing outreach projects in both group and individual Art Therapy for children and families.
- Development of a Teens Learning Hub that facilitates self-initiated studies for Teens.
