Abstract/Notes: There are currently Montessori schools in 33 African countries, primarily in early childhood education. This brief overview examines the diversity of Montessori practice throughout the African sub-continent, from the 1920s to today including private, philanthropic and government-funded efforts, as a racist, colonial project as well as part of efforts to decolonize education, to make it culturally responsive and empower communities, particularly in African rural areas. There are elite, private Montessori schools around Africa and Montessori practitioners have also developed innovative, affordable models for expanding Montessori, including sponsoring training and creating materials locally. In addition, they have demonstrated how key Montessori components can be aligned with aspects of African culture, including respecting the child, building independence, and cultivating peace, community, and a connection with nature. The chapter concludes with brief case studies of contemporary Montessori practice in South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt and Morocco.
