    Montessori philosophy embraces the whole child, their natural curiosity, and love of learning. Based on mutual respect and cooperation, Montessori education encourages independence by providing environments that meet children's developmental needs. This builds self-confidence, inner discipline, a sense of self-worth and promotes positive social behavior.

    Dr. Maria Montessori's insights and understanding of child development have been enormously influential worldwide, both through the Montessori movement and in mainstream education, which has incorporated many of her practices. Interestingly, Montessori education parallels what is now known about brain development and actively fosters cognitive functions, social cognition, and such higher-order competencies as empathy and leadership, thus providing a strong foundation for lifelong learning. Montessori Education Develops:

    • Concentration and persistence
    • Independence
    • A sense of order
    • A positive attitude towards learning
    • Initiative and intrinsic motivation
    • Self-confidence
    • Self-discipline
    • Sensory-motor skills
    • Natural curiosity
    • Cooperation and a sense of community
    • Respect for the rights and needs of others
    • Respect for the natural world

    The mission is to provide a challenging and diverse education that fosters independence, respect, collaboration, and a love of learning. It supports children to be valuable members of the community and care for the environment. Vision is A Montessori learning environment that involves families, educators, and the broader community in empowering children to reach their potential.

    We have small, multi-aged classes where children are supported as unique individuals. Independence, self-discipline, mutual respect, and a love of learning are consistently fostered throughout the school from Baby Steps to Year 9. It is upon this foundation that teachers, parents, and other school community members work cooperatively to advance each child's unique talents.

    As a school espousing the Montessori philosophy, our students, staff, parents, and Board are committed to preparing children to play a constructive role in society, using their talents responsibly and working actively towards creating a better, more peaceful world. Southern Montessori School has a strong sense of community where partnerships between the school and the home are vital. This sense of shared purpose helps develop a secure, caring environment where children thrive and rise to their true potential. To get a feel for the school, I invite you to visit when classes are in session to see what we can offer your family.
