An education for independence, preparing not just for school, but for life.

Montessori Works was established in 1991 by a small group of parents who wanted a high quality education for their children.

Since then we have been the pioneer and advocate for providing a Montessori philosophy and environment in a long day care setting for children from birth to six years. The objective is to provide an environment that allows the development of independence, self-confidence and inner security.

The Montessori Way

We believe that your child learns best at their own pace and by exercising their own choice within an environment that has been prepared to engage interest so that each child engages in activities.

The Montessori environment includes music and culture, art and craft, academic, physical and practical skills in which sustainability is totally embedded. The curriculum is holistic and is organised in multi-aged groupings 0-3 and 3-6 (2-5). Finally we believe consideration for others is a core value in the process of guiding children’s behaviour.

Parent Information

Communication with parents is especially valued. We endeavour to include parents in all aspects of our program with weekly newsletters and daily opportunities to see photos, read observations, understand and contribute to cycles of planning and view curriculum decisions and give feedback. Parents are encouraged to engage with children in a range of activities so that our Montessori families reflect an inclusive community.
