Advocating for the Montessori Pedagogy of education for over Two Decade.

The Montessori Community of Tanzania (MCT) has a rich history that dates back to its establishment in 1997 as the Montessori Training Association of Tanzania, registered as a society under the Tanzania Societies Ordinance of 1954, bearing ordinance number SO. NO. 8922. However, in early 2021, MCT underwent significant restructuring in its constitutional framework and operational model to align with the current government requirements outlined in the NGO policy and its associated act number 4 of 2002, further amended in 2018.
Throughout its existence spanning 26 years, MCT has been a dedicated advocate for the Montessori Pedagogy of education. Its primary focus has been on nurturing children’s natural growth, unlocking their potentialities, and nurturing their individual personalities to cultivate responsible adults for the betterment of the nation.
