The South African Montessori Association
Created especially for the members of the association, as well as others interested in Montessori pedagogy – we trust you will find the information on our website most useful.
We encourage you to browse our site, where you will find SAMA member schools; quality assurance process for SAMA member schools; training institutions and suppliers of Montessori equipment and other useful resources. Should you require any further information or support, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
SAMA is the official liaison between its member body and government departments; including the Department Social Development (DSD) and the Department of Basic Education (DBE). This representation is paramount in keeping best practice and integrity in Montessori schools.
As a volunteer run organisation, SAMA is committed to growth and support of Montessori in South Africa.
