What Our Families Say

Highly recommend this centre! I was nervous about my daughter transitioning into childcare but the carers and management were there every step of the way to make things easy for both my girl and for me. My daughter loves her days there and I have the peace of mind knowing that she is being taken care of well, and that she is in an environment that helps her learn and explore. My daughter needed some extra attention with her routine, which the carers really made an effort to accommodate. I cannot recommend this centre highly enough – in fact, we are due for our second baby soon and have already enrolled our bub for the coming year.

Anne Park / Parent at Burwood Road Montessori Academy

I have to say I made the right decision to enrol my child in Burwood Road Montessori. My child started in this centre when she was one year old. I was very relieved that she settled in so quickly because I found the educators were very friendly and professional, they catered for my child’s need and helped my child to settle in the new environment. As she moved to the toddler room, she became more independent and responsible at home which I had to give all the credits to the educators from the day care centre. The educators also support us a lot during trasition time for the toilet training and gave us some valuable advises to support us to help our little one in the toilet training at home. I am also very impressed of the curriculum they implement with my child everyday which is very educational, interactive and meaningful. I’m glad that my child is having fun everyday at Montessori, and at the same time she is nurtured with knowledge and skills.

Ed Zen / Parent at Burwood Park Montessori Academy

We absolutely LOVE Burwood Montessori! The minute my son stepped in there for his orientation, he never wanted to leave! The care and support of the teachers and managers are incredible! They really listen to what your child needs and put those things into effect. My son loves it there so much sometimes he cries when he leaves! It’s a beautiful community and I love the learning that they provide and the comprehensive newsletters on activities and events that happen. We love them! We feel very lucky to be there!
