O.B. Montessori Center traces its roots to Operation Brotherhood International
OBMC is rooted in the humanitarianism that is the heart and spirit of Operation Brotherhood International (OBI), founded and chaired by Oscar J. Arellano in 1954. Its more recognized foundation, core concepts of Dr. Maria Montessori’s educational method, came later. With both these roots—care for humanity and belief in a child’s capability—OBMC maintains its legacy of service that education must not be an end in itself, but the beginning of changing society and the nation for the better.
