Government Liaison

Since its inception, Montessori Australia has represented the interests of the Montessori sector at both the state and national levels. MA has enabled Montessorians across the country to speak with “one voice” and we are delighted that Montessori is now seen as a significant sector by government and other agencies. With this in place we are working on a number of fronts to achieve further recognition of Montessori and to advocate for the interests of children, especially highlighting the importance of the first years of life.

One of our major focus areas is the drafting and submission of responses on behalf of the Montessori sector on major policy and regulation reviews both on a federal and state level. We constantly strive to support Montessori education in this complex and changing landscape.
