Pakistan Montessori Council (PMC)

About PMC

Pakistan Montessori Council (PMC) serves as a Montessori consortium under which individuals and companies interested in Montessori training, Montessori schooling, and other Montessori related activities mutually work for its promotion in Pakistan.

Note: It is important to mention that the word "COUNCIL" in Pakistan Montessori Council does not refer to its commonly assumed meaning in Pakistan i.e. "Regulatory Authority" but to its literal origins where it refers to a group of equals who sit together to seek solutions to problems or to pursue the same cause. PMC is a private venture and is not to be confused with a government body.

 

Pakistan Montessori Council (PMC) is sponsored and managed  by the following companies, which are also referred to as PMC's Panel of Parent Organisations (PPPO), which include;

 

The other part consists of several hundreds of affiliated entities that benefit from PMC's programs and help PMC the needs and requirements for the promotion of Montessori system in Pakistan. They are referred to as  Panel of Affiliated Individuals and Organisations (PAIO) and include affiliated individuals, Montessori schools, and Montessori related businesses.

PMC's primary role is to pass on the benefits resulting from the sponsorship, services and research carried out PPPO to the members of PAIO in the form of free or subsidized training workshops and seminars, Montessori materials, curriculum resources, and administrative manuals. It is a forum where Montessori related businesses and individuals can come together and seek solutions to Montessori related issues and support each other. Thus, PMC is eager to affiliate as many individuals, Montessori schools, and business as possible by offering attractive packages, and thus lead them to Montessori excellence through regular support and its system of self accreditation. Its other roles include the delivery of publications, regulation of research, maintenance of online social forums and e-mail groups, etc.

We are not alone. In almost all developed countries Montessori organizations are working in the private sector for the promotion of Montessori system of education as an alternative to conventional schooling. Some of the renowned names include International Montessori Council, Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators, California Montessori Council, Montessori India, Association Montessori International (AMI), Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE). 

Montessori system is a wonderful system of education and almost every research conducted on the validity of its results proves it to be better than any other system. Now, due to the efforts of the above-mentioned organizations, Montessori method is becoming more and more popular each year in the countries where they are working. In Pakistan, however, even after 112 years, since Dr. Maria Montessori made her first school, we have not done much in this regard. We needed a forum to spread awareness regarding the importance of the absorbent age (birth to 6 years) and the sensitive periods.  Moreover, we needed an organization that encouraged and supported institutions to designs and executes convenient and accessible Montessori teachers' training programs that reach far and beyond to every nook and corner of Pakistan. Furthermore, we needed a forum that encouraged the manufacturing of Montessori materials in large and cottage industries. For all the above reasons it became absolutely necessary for us to establish PMC. We have been working very hard since 2006, and are determined to continue with even greater dedication to serve. We, all at PMC, are eager to have your support and cooperation.
