Montessori Schools and Centres Australia prides itself on becoming Australia’s only not-for-profit, national, Montessori representative body. MSCA was established in response to continuous requests from across Australia for an organisation to support and protect authentic Montessori practice and education in Australian Montessori schools and centres. This includes connecting Montessori communities, uniting schools and centres, serving the needs and interests of our members, representing and advocating for Montessori in Australia and providing rich resources to advance and help grow Montessori education. MSCA has essential values that guide our operations, service, and strategic planning; our members and the Montessori community are at the core of our organisation.
MSCA has already created a truly professional body, with a Board elected by its members and committees working to improve the broad interests and wishes of the Montessori community. Events and professional development have been a key focus of our first year, with wonderful Australian speakers and connections for your business managers, educators of all ages, centre directors, and school leadership teams. Excellent attendance and global interest in these events have exceeded our expectations; we are excited to deliver an even more extensive events schedule in 2021!
