About Montessori 

Montessori education is an approach developed by physician and educator Maria Montessori. It is characterised by its emphasis on independence, freedom within limits and respect for the child’s natural development. At Montessori Educare, we base our curriculum on Montessori’s philosophy to encourage curiosity and exploration. Our children gain essential life skills and develop their own interests and talents in a free yet supportive environment.


Kilmartin/Thessman Family
We love Montessori, it has been a great place for our boy and can't wait for our little girl to go too. The staff are so friendly, caring and welcoming. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this place for anyone. No matter what your child's needs are they are all covered. 

Samuels family
My son is the luckiest of my 5 children. He has reaped the benefits of Montessori learning. The children are all lovely and well behaved. They all have great communication skills and friendships. It’s been the best choice for him. Can't speak more highly of it. 

Carter Family 
We love the Montessori staff who provide a supportive and educational environment for our kids. Its a great place to send your children if you want a quality pre-school education in a relaxed atmosphere where kids are able to explore and learn at their own pace.
