Junior Entrepreneur Program - Age does not determine talent

I AM Montessori’s Junior Entrepreneur Program gives students aged 8-13 the opportunity to produce and market a product or service of their own.

Children engage in both group and individual learning experiences to gain an understanding of budgets, brands, customer service and more.


There is a new program held every term (aligned with the School Terms) and each child attends once a week after school.

Over the course of the term, each child will create a product or service based on their own idea and bring it to market at the I AM Montessori Markets held in the first week of the school holidays. Each student can continue to sell their products and services at each Holiday market for the year.

The structure of the course includes:

  • Idea Brainstorming and Development
  • Understanding Target Markets
  • Brand Development - Identity, Logo, Packaging
  • Pricing Strategies
  • Product/Service Development
  • Marketing Plan
  • Business Plan Finalisation
  • Product/Service released

There will be group exercises and leadership opportunities that will be extremely beneficial skills for your child to have.

The group will develop a product or service in the term that will assist cause/charity of the group's choosing from the beginning.

The course is lead by Rebecca Grugan, RCG Creative and there will be guest appearances from industry professionals/entrepreneurs to inspire and help the children on their start up journey.

The cost is $259 plus materials/costs associated with your child's own business development, and there is an application process.
