Montessori Community of Tanzania (MCT) was originally established and registered in 1997 as the Montessori Training Association of Tanzania; a society under the Tanzania Societies Ordinance of 1954, with ordinance number SO. NO. 8922. In early 2021 MCT had to restructure its constitutional framework and operational model to comply with the provision of the current government requirement of NGO policy and its associated act number 4 of 2002, with its amendment in 2018.

Over the past 24 years, the Montessori Community of Tanzania (MCT) has been promoting the Montessori Pedagogy of education by supporting children’s natural growth, potentialities, and personalities to become responsible adults for the benefit of our nation. While envisioning a society in which children have affordable access to the Montessori Pedagogy of learning for their holistic development; MCT in collaboration with Seven (7) Montessori Training Centers in Tanzania has trained more than 4,000 caretakers, 2,000 daycare centres and reached about 100,000 children. Montessori pedagogy is a well-used educational concept (Child-centred) with a long history in Tanzania. Over the decades now, several thousand caretakers/guardians have been trained with the Montessori values and principles which are currently mostly practiced in nursery or daycare centers.
