Montessori programs at Tagai State College have grown from a single 3-6 class group in 2009, to four 3-6, and one 6-9 class groups 2012, with another 6-9 group coming on line in 2013.
MCF’s partnership with Tagai State College has meant both that parents of students at the Thursday Island Primary campus have a choice between Montessori and mainstream programs for their children, a rarity in public education, and that the Montessori programs are both high quality and sustainable over time.
Two local teachers, already qualified as early childhood educators, have almost completed their Montessori 3-6 training. Research with the parents of children in the programs has revealed not only academic achievement exceeding expectations , but also high levels of parent satisfaction with their children’s social and emotional development.
