Montessori Education Program
The first six years of life are the most crucial in a child’s development. This is why Montessori Academy has developed a progressive, scientifically based education program designed to provide children with positive foundations for learning and wellbeing as they progress from birth to age six.

Each program builds on the one before it, providing students with a diverse range of educational experiences designed to suit their developmental needs and interests.
The Montessori Program goes beyond academics to embrace the child as a whole person, taking into account their talents, social skills, physical and emotional wellbeing, and the need to make learning interactive, engaging and fun!
Montessori Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework
The Montessori Curriculum covers five key learning areas, including: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Culture. In addition to these key learning areas, Montessori Academy also cover the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework, Health and Wellbeing, Science, Geography, School Readiness, and the Arts. In this way, Montessori Academy delivers a holistic education program that is tailored to the unique developmental needs and interests of each individual child.
The Montessori Difference
Families that are new to Montessori Academy often ask how Montessori early education is different to play based child care. The answer lies in the way learning experiences are conducted, which is shaped by the Montessori Philosophy, teaching principles and practices, educator mindset, and the structure and materials within the prepared environment.
The Montessori Philosophy is focused on empowering children with the knowledge and tools to achieve their full potential. Education is largely self-paced, interest-based, and designed to amplify children’s natural desire to learn through process focused educational experiences.
From an educational perspective, the role of the Montessori Educator is to observe, guide, facilitate and respond to children’s interests. Educator’s encourage children’s independence, and facilitate learning using the Montessori materials in the prepared environment.
The Benefits of Montessori Education
The Montessori Method has been widely recognised as the leading format for education worldwide. It helps children to learn more effectively than conventional approaches because it is child-centred, self-paced, embraces each child’s unique interests and strengths, values individuality, and empowers students with the knowledge and skills to achieve their full potential through hands-on learning experiences.
Beginning at an early age, Montessori Education assists children in developing a sense of order, social skills, coordination, communication skills, emotional intelligence, concentration and independence. As students progress through the Montessori Education Program, they begin to self-correct, look critically at their work, and establish a love of learning as a foundation for school and life.
