Montessori Australia

We are excited to be listed in TEA and offer high-quality Montessori education to children across the country. Our Montessori method is based on the philosophy of Maria Montessori, which encourages children to explore their natural curiosity and develop their unique talents and abilities.

At Montessori Australia, we believe that every child has the potential to learn and grow in a nurturing environment. Our programs are designed to meet each child’s individual needs and pace, ensuring they can progress and thrive in their own way.

Our experienced and qualified Montessori teachers lead our toddler, preschool, and primary school programs. We offer a range of programs to cater to your child’s educational journey.

We believe that our Montessori approach to education can have a significant impact on children’s lives, fostering confidence, independence, and self-motivation.

We strive to create a supportive and stimulating learning environment for our students, allowing them to reach their full potential. Our goal is to instill a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our Montessori programs. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a visit to one of our campuses, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

Government Liaison

Since its inception, Montessori Australia has represented the interests of the Montessori sector at both the state and national levels. MA has enabled Montessorians across the country to speak with “one voice” and we are delighted that Montessori is now seen as a significant sector by government and other agencies. With this in place we are working on a number of fronts to achieve further recognition of Montessori and to advocate for the interests of children, especially highlighting the importance of the first years of life.

One of our major focus areas is the drafting and submission of responses on behalf of the Montessori sector on major policy and regulation reviews both on a federal and state level. We constantly strive to support Montessori education in this complex and changing landscape.
