We offer a specialised education opportunity for your child. Our hours are 8:45am- 3:15pm ( extended to 3:30pm by arrangement) during school terms, because we think both children and teachers need a break from the work they do. Holiday attendance can be available during the school year – helpful for working parents.
“Teachers have created a culture where children are valued, celebrated and affirmed.” – Education Review Office.
Warm, trusting relationships will always be the foundation for children’s learning. For this reason our teacher ratios are 1:4 in Nido and 1:6 in Casa and Villa.
“Skilful teachers support children to become confident and competent learners. They interact respectfully with children. Teachers are sensitive and responsive to children’s individual development”. Education Review Report April 2013
What Our Families are Saying
“I know that my child is getting a great educational grounding that is individually right for him. He is a very confident learner. He reads every supermarket and road sign we pass. He’s interested in nature and knows how to research on the internet and in books. I’m so pleased with the choice we’ve made for his first education.”
“For me it was essential that I could completely trust the people I left my child with. I wanted them to understand him and to care about him. I wanted him to be happy. The relationships the teachers have worked to build with him and with our whole family are very special. I love the Portfolios – seeing how teachers are guiding his learning and development; and being able to contribute to these.”
“I had seen the Montessori kids and teachers everywhere in the community – the library, the supermarket, the parks, just walking together laughing and chatting to each other and the people they meet. It was one of the reasons I chose Montessori for my child. I like the fact that the children are part of the town they live in.”
“I’m interested in the research that goes on in the Centre – which influences the work that teachers are doing with children. The MAPS project was spectacular – we loved being involved. I’m impressed that teachers have such enthusiasm for continued learning – good role models for our children.”
“There is just so much space for children. Each class has a whole house to learn in – and it’s beautiful. I’d love to stay and play.”
