Pakistan Montessori Council (PMC) started its School Affiliation Program in 2007. Since then hundreds of schools have benefited from its valuable services.
Under this program, PMC welcomes any Montessori school, Montessori organisation or any other Montessori related business anywhere in the world to be an affiliated member.
As recently as in 2006, the world at large was celebrating and honouring Dr. Maria Montessori for a hundred years of establishment of Montessori methodology of education. However, as sad as it may seem, the Pakistani schools, in general, are still ignorant of this highly successful and internationally acclaimed system of education.
Our survey, conducted in 2007, reports that most schools want their pre-school sections to convert from conventional to Montessori but fail to do so.
The main problems/hurdles included:
- the cost of equipping schools with Montessori material is beyond the reach of many aspirant schools.
- expensive nature of Montessori training keeps administrators from getting their teachers trained in Montessori methodology.
- unavailability of curriculum guidelines and any supporting organization pushes schools to stick to their conventional instructional methods.
This has impelled PMC to develop a comprehensive program of School Affiliation for new and existing Montessori centers which want to start with Montessori or convert from conventional systems to Montessori system of education respectively.
