Montessori is an education for independence; preparing not just for school, but for life.

Montessori Education Programs

Montessori Education Programs inspire children towards a lifelong love of learning by appealing to their interests, encouraging them in directing their own learning, and by fulfilling their developmental need for independence and self-mastery. Through Montessori Education Programs, children become confident, independent learners, with the knowledge and skills to thrive at school and in life.

Our Education Programs

Montessori Academy’s Education Programs are child-centred, hands-on, and designed with multiple learning styles in mind. They focus on providing children with the optimal learning environment, materials, and guidance to discover their full potential. 

Each of our Education Programs are based on Doctor Montessori’s findings about how to best support children’s complete development during their formative years. Programs are child-led and self-paced while guided and enriched by knowledgable educators. In Montessori, the classroom, the students, and the educators come together to form a personalised approach to learning.

Through Montessori Education, children develop a concrete understanding of key learning areas while developing a diverse range of real-life skills that set them up for success at school and in life. The benefits of Montessori education are time-tested and continue to be proven to deliver outstanding academic and wellbeing outcomes for children.

Core Montessori Beliefs

  • All children are born intelligent
  • Children have an absorbent mind
  • The first six years of life are crucial in a child’s development
  • Education should focus on preparing the whole child
  • Learning should be individually focused and self-paced
  • The educator’s role is to guide and enrich each individual’s learning process
  • Motivation to learn should come from within
  • Children learn best through exploration, problem solving, and experience

Infant Program

The Montessori Infant Program provides children with a nurturing learning environment that is full of educational materials that meet their specific developmental needs and interests during the first two years of life. 

Learning goals for infants focus on movement skills, language development, developmental milestones, fine motor development, social skills, and the joy of every child. 

Toddler Program

The Montessori Toddler Program is active, self-paced, and involves learning using all five senses.

Children are introduced to the five areas of the Montessori Curriculum, including: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Culture, and develop competence through repetition and practice. 

Learning goals focus on developing independence, social skills, confidence, and a solid academic base in preparation for future learning.

Preschool Program

The Montessori Preschool Program offers children a dynamic learning environment where they are empowered to choose their work, follow their interests, and progress at their own pace.

Within this space, children develop their independence, refine their concentration, and explode into learning as they develop their intelligence and higher-level brain processes. 

The design of the preschool classroom, and the educational materials within, reflect these interests and provide rich opportunities for learning that nurture children’s complete development while preparing them for school and life.

School Readiness Kinder Prep Program

During their final year of preschool, children participate in a comprehensive School Readiness Kinder Preparation Program that targets core academic competencies and school readiness skills.

This ensures children are well prepared to make a successful transition to any type of primary school environment.

The primary aims of the School Readiness Program is to provide children with enriching learning experiences that nurture strong academic foundations and a confident approach to life-long learning.

Daily Routines

Daily routines provide a consistent pattern of activities for learning time, meals, rest, and outdoor play. The predictability of the routine helps children to feel secure and positively influences their emotional, cognitive, and social development. The daily routine for each age group is adapted to meet children’s needs, support emerging interests, and nurture the development of each child’s personality and intelligence.
