At Southern Montessori, we aim to know your children well and to nurture a love of learning that will last a lifetime.

Principal’s Welcome

I warmly welcome you to our website.

 Southern Montessori School provides a dynamic, authentic, contemporary Montessori education that promotes academic excellence whilst seeking to develop the whole child.

 The greatest investment you can make is to provide your child with a strong educational foundation. Our Montessori program promotes academic, physical, social and emotional growth in small, multi-aged classes where children are known and nurtured as unique individuals.

Our challenging curriculum reflects the Montessori ethos of active, inquiry-based, integrated learning and allows students opportunities to follow their interests and passions. Students are supported to develop a strong sense of wellbeing including respect for self and others and their environment.

From our Babies program to Year 9, our dedicated teaching team strive to ensure that students are actively engaged in their own learning, guiding them to develop the skills and strategies they will need to flourish as independent, resilient, self-disciplined, lifelong learners. As a school which embraces Montessori philosophy and practice, we are committed to preparing students to play a constructive role in society, using their abilities responsibly and working actively towards creating a better, more peaceful world.

Education is a shared responsibility of students, parents and teachers. It is this sense of shared purpose which helps develop the secure, caring environment where students flourish.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about Montessori education and our commitment to supporting each of our students to reach their potential.

I look forward to meeting with you personally and welcome the opportunity to show you our school.
