See what we are all about.

Welcome to the South African Montessori Association (SAMA) website. This site has been created especially for the members of the Association but also for the general Montessori public. We hope you find the information useful.

SAMA's inaugural AGM held in April 2003 and the association was constituted with the main aims of uniting Montessorians in South Africa, uplifting the Montessori image in establishing more standardized quality criteria within schools.
