What is Montessori?
 
Dr Maria Montessori, developed her unique method of educating children over a professional career that spanned over fifty years. The Montessori approach was developed through intense scientific observation of children from many ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds from birth to maturity.
Montessori classrooms provide a specially crafted learning environment where children are able to respond to their natural tendency to work. Children have an innate passion for learning, and the Montessori classroom encourages this by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, purposeful activities with the guidance of trained staff. Through their work, children become confident, responsible, independent learners, who trust in their own abilities. They develop concentration and joyful self-discipline inspiring them towards a lifelong love of learning. It is for this reason that it is often referred to as an ‘aid to life’. As an educational system, it is used in over 22,000 schools worldwide, and has a longer track record of success than any other educational approach in the world.
 
Our Curriculum
 
There are 5 core curriculum areas in the Montessori program; Practical life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics & Cultural studies.  The curriculum is recognised by The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) & satisfies the requirements under the Victorian Early Years Learning & Development Framework.
