Innovator Award

This award celebrates an individual or organisation who:

  • has been visionary in advancing Montessori pedagogy.
  • has developed new and innovative ways of implementing Montessori philosophy in their work, whether it be in education, eldercare, research, or advocacy.

It seeks to honour the work of individuals in a variety of arenas to increase access and equity by advancing Montessori education in the public school sector, intergenerational communities, eldercare, and service delivery to remote and regional Australian communities or marginal areas that are under-resourced in Montessori education, or in areas of research or advocacy.
