Welcome to Montessori Album! We've been online for over ten years (yay!), but unfortunately we've had a lot of spam accounts over time. We didn't have a good way of sorting them out...so took the extreme measure of wiping everything before November 2019.
We're so sorry! We've setup measures to prevent such drastic action again. Please recreate your account if it doesn't work.
