Melbourne Montessori School
At Melbourne Montessori School, we believe that our students are living in the most intensely stimulating period in the history of the Earth. There is a strong community interest in Montessori education and in 21st century skills and we are currently expanding year by year. We have been teaching Montessori education for 42 years at our two campuses, one in Caulfield and one in Brighton.
Each campus has classrooms equipped with beautifully designed Montessori materials and outdoor play spaces with interesting structures. These environments are prepared for students at each developmental level, and allow them to gradually take responsibility for their own education. As a result of this growing independence, students are helped to develop a life-long passion for learning.
In 2015 Melbourne Montessori School received an Overall Exceeding NQF rating for the 7 classes which encompass the programs for our 2 year olds and Cycle 1 (3 - 5 years). A Montessori education in multi-age classrooms will give a child:
- A calm environment of stability, respect, order and beauty
- The opportunity to work at their own pace in a non-competitive environment
- Systematic steps in learning, from the concrete to the abstract
- The opportunity to follow their natural curiosity
As well as our high quality Montessori curriculum, in the Junior School we offer a strong Music program incorporating a school band, choir, string group, Physical Education, Italian and two hours per week of Art. We also offer after-school clubs including Drama, Yoga, Band, Chess, Write Club, Code Club and Sport.
We view each child's education at Melbourne Montessori School as a strong partnership between home and school. We appreciate the strong sense of community that we all work hard to achieve and welcome the involvement of parents on many levels.
Now the school has expanded into secondary education with growth towards 150 students within the next four years. At Melbourne Montessori Senior School, we provide broad opportunities for young people to become excited by the world around them, we cater for their different interests and skill levels and take students further. We surround them with passionate teachers who can light that essential spark to ask more and expect more. We encourage students to push the boundaries and start creating their own path in life in a secure, supportive group. Beyond the normal Australian Curriculum subjects we offer a broad range of subjects delivered in an engaging way. Expect more from education.
