“The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim
at preparing him for school, but for life”

– Dr Maria Montessori

“We chose Montessori to give the best preschool experience to our son available. We wanted him to grow into an independent, caring, confident, polite, respectful and intelligent young person. Montessori will give your child opportunities and skills for life beyond your expectations”


“We were drawn to the high quality of staff, the strong sense community and how children are respected and genuinely cared for”.


“Children are free to choose their own work, which is often of a practical nature, to learn and develop at their own pace. Teachers show immense respect for children and vice versa, and although there is collaboration, children may work in solitude if they wish. Respect is the cornerstone of Montessori”.


“We were attracted to the Montessoris because of the care for and communication with family, the wide range of experiences and learning for our children and the way that Montessori philosophy aligns with the way we would like to bring up our children”.
