Montessori Schools in Thailand

by 23 Nov 2022Montessori Wikipedia

In Thailand are a growing number of Montessori schools and organizations. The first Montessori Schools since 1995 have been founded in Phuket by Willem van Benthum, founder of the Rawai Progressive International Montessori School in Phuket (1996) that provided an authentic Montessori learning environment, in Pattaya Naklua and by parents in Chiang Mai (Piti Suksa School in 1998). But the history of Alternative education in Thailand and the influence of Maria Montessori to several (mostly private schools) might date back to much earlier years.

Montessori Homeschool Centers, Groups, and Families (Official Registered Thai Homeschooling)

The Thai homeschool year starts in January and ends in November. December is considered a holiday. A half-term break can be chosen freely. All Thai National Tests (O-Net) are optional for homeschoolers. Thai parents need to register their children to be legally able to homeschool their children with the provincial primary or secondary Education office. In some provinces, the Secondary Education office is located in another province (i.e., Phuket Secondary students need to be registered in Phang Nga Secondary Education Office while Elementary students can be registered with the Phuket Primary Education Office). Additionally, they need a home school “Leader” with at least a Secondary Grade Final Exam (Mathayom 6). The Thai Government is supporting homeschooled families financially per school term. Foreigners cannot lead a home school while they can teach Homeschool students.
