Our Mission A sustainable learning center is providing excellence in child-focused Montessori education for 0 – 12-year-olds. Our Vision As our children take their first steps towards independence, we aim to provide them with a warm, positive, and inspiring experience of education that will build a foundation of a love of lifelong learning. Our Values:

  • Relationships within and between all members of our school community, including students, staff, parents, Committee of Management, and the broader community.
  • A connected and cohesive school community and appreciate the valuable contributions and support provided.
  • The philosophy and principles of Montessori education and endeavor to deliver our education program with honesty and integrity.
  • Excellence in Montessori education caters to the needs of the individual student in a peaceful and respectful learning environment.

The school logo depicts a peacock that represents kindness, compassion, wisdom, and patience in many cultures. For some time, a wild peacock adopted our school as its home and spent several years as a free bird that chose to live within our grounds.

Beechworth Montessori provides an enriching, holistic education for children, guided by Montessori philosophy and curriculum, in a peaceful and harmonious learning environment. Our philosophy is “Fostering the Potential of Every Child – Education for Life.” 

Beechworth Montessori School aims to encourage respect for oneself, respect for others, and respect for property, including the environment. A safe, secure, and cooperative environment is provided through a climate of active listening and communication, positive role-modeling, human relations education, and adherence to a fair and effective set of procedures. These are fundamental principles of behavior to be practiced by ALL members of our school community.

The group commenced operations in 1997 as the Beechworth Montessori Children’s Group to provide a Montessori preschool program for three and four-year-old children. Tiny Tots program was established in 2002 for children aged up to three years, and this acts as an introduction for both parents and children to the Montessori philosophy. In 2006 the preschool program expanded to include five-year-old children.

In 2007 a primary school for children aged 6-12 years old opened, enabling children to complete their early childhood and primary school learning within the Montessori educational philosophy.

Families may continue their Montessori education at the MAP (Montessori Adolescent Program) at Beechworth Secondary College, which commenced in 2015.

The Tiny Tots program was established in 2002 for children aged up to three years, and this acts as an introduction for both parents and children to the Montessori philosophy. In 2014 an afternoon care program was established for children in the kindergarten program at Beechworth Montessori, allowing more flexibility and more significant support for our families. In 2015 this program extended to include children from 12 weeks of age and opened to the broader community.
