Islamabad

Islamabad

If things go as planned, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is to formally launch Montessori classes in government schools in Islamabad Capital Territory this week.

In this respect, he will go to the Islamabad Model School for Boys, F-8/3, to inaugurate the Montessori Section.

Currently, only privately-owned schools offer Montessori education.

With those of good repute charging exorbitant fee, the people from low income groups either don’t give their children the formal preschool education or enrol them for the purpose in low-quality schools.

The initiative, which is part of the Prime Minister’s Educational Reforms Programme overseen by the prime minister's daughter, Maryam Nawaz, is the first in the country’s history.

Its first phase envisages development of Montessori section at Islamabad Model School for Boys, F-8/3, Islamabad Model School for Boys, F-7/1, Islamabad Model School for Boys, F-10/4, Islamabad Model School for Boys, Sohan, and Islamabad Model School for Boys, Khanna Daak.

Afterwards, the system will be replicated in all other government educational institutions of the ICT.

Besides free preschool education, the Montessori students will also be given uniform and lunch including light food and milk.
