The Montessori Philosophy and the work of Maria Montessori is the foundation upon which the philosophy of Montessori Educare is built. As passionate educators, we empower children to develop a healthy self-image through the nurturing of their physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cognitive needs.
The children's self esteem grows in a positive environment where we sincerely care and recognise that each child and their family is unique and bring with them diverse knowledge, understandings and needs. The children's innate love of learning is encouraged and we understand the importance of support and compassion in preparing them for life. We show the utmost respect for all children by offering them the freedom to learn at their own pace according to their own interests within a structured setting.
We prepare everything within the environment with only the child in mind and ensure they have access to everything they need without having to wait for adult help. Not only do we advocate child independence but we also promote an atmosphere that encourages social interaction for cooperative learning and peer-teaching.
Children learn to respect and celebrate each other's efforts and to take care not only of themselves, but of others and their environment. As trained professionals, we have complete confidence that the materials and activities provided within Montessori Educare's programme will facilitate each child to reach their fullest potential.

My son loves going g here. Such lovely caring teachers in a wonderful peaceful learning atmosphere. He loves the activities and his learning has really blossomed through the structure and activities on offer. Small class sizes mean he gets great attention and isn't overwhelmed by too many children.
Montessori Educare was an excellent choice for our son and we can’t rate the centre and teachers highly enough. The teaching programme and learning process is outstanding. We love how they are supported and encouraged to explore and develop their independence, social skills, self-esteem, respect and care for themselves and others and it’s all done at their own pace, in a calm and interesting environment, We always feel welcome at the centre. The teachers are 5 Star and great to deal with, our son loves going to Montessori.
Both my girls have been to montissori and both have been extremely happy.
They have fun and learn at the same time.
The teachers are wonderful and it's great to know they are in such safe caring hands.
Our son has now been at Montessori for six months. He loves going and has made a lovely group of friends.
I am constantly delighted by the learning he demonstrates at home. The staff has encouraged and developed his love of dinosaurs, space, and reading.
I thoroughly recommend this lovely, encouraging, respectful learning environment and the fabulous staff.
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 hesistate in recomending this place for anyone. No matter what you child's needs are they are all covered.
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. Its been the best choice for him. Can't speak more highly of it.
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.
I’m thrilled with our choice to send our children to Montessori Educare, and can’t rate the centre, and teachers highly enough! The children are most certainly the key focus here - we’ve loved how they are supported and encouraged to explore and develop their independence, social skills, self-esteem, respect and care for themselves and others, love of learning etc – and it’s all done at their own pace, in a calm and interesting environment, and always with bucket loads of fun!
A supportive and very professional team. My child has been here since the middle of this year and continues to receive much understanding and support with development in preparation for Primary School next year. Highly recommended.
After over a year of my fun loving son being upset and clingy every time I dropped him to his preschool, a friend recommended trying Montessori and within a week he was happy and settled. Since then all four of my children have gone through Montessori and they have each loved different aspects of it. My eldest loved learning about the world around him, my next thrived on the arts and crafts and the positive connections she made with her teachers who she still speaks of fondly, my third loved outside play and the independence of choosing activities that interested her and our last is loving the connections with friends, the celebrations of different cultures and traditions, and making her own porridge in the morning! We have especially loved the balanced approach of Montessori Educare and the way they encourage children to be responsible and appropriately independent. They provide a safe, warm, fun environment for the children to play, explore and learn.
Fantastic centre! After my daughter being 'lost' in the chaos of a very busy early childhood centre, the move to montessori was perfect. She has gained so many skills, and so much confidience, and the staff are incredibly supportive, helpful and welcoming. This is truely a centre that is about the children, the philosophy is amazing and I found that the many misconceptions about the 'montessori way' were so far off from the reality of this wonderful centre. And it is not soley focussed on educational learning, there is so much other learning about emotions, respect, social etiquette, manners, encouragment, and caring for others. Please look into montessori when considering where to send your child!
My son has been at Montessori for 6 months. He loves it!! They have wonderful routines and very practical learning. The activities and learning areas are all bright and very inviting for the children. They have a very friendly and welcoming staff who spend one on one time developing and understanding the children.
It is not just a great stepping stone for school, it is also a safe, encouraging environment that my son has been able to develop in. I love their mat time activities and learning about the BIG world things. My son is always coming home and telling us about new friends and is proud to show what he has been doing. It has been awesome to see his confidence and skills grow!
A fantastic centre with a wonderful staff!!
Both of our children are thriving at Montessori, the teachers really care about them as individuals. They have friends of all ages as the classes are mixed. My eldest will leave for school very soon and all reports from the school are that he is well prepared for the transition.
We almost sent our kids to a kindy until we heard about the Montessori through a friend of ours. We live 20mins away but the travel is definitely worth it and it has given our kids the best start in preparation for school. It's such a calm environment in the class rooms and the teachers are lovely! Couldn't ask for anymore. Highly recommended!
It was a big decision choosing a place to send our daughter. We have been very happy with our choice. Our daughter always looks forward to her days and has so much fun whilst learning at the same time. probably the best thing about Montessori is the staff, they really genuinely care about the children and I have total peace of mind she is safe and happy while away from us.
my daughter alayna has been part monessori family for her hole early childhood and we love them they treat you as family and I never feel anything but joy when I drop my daughter there each moring as ino she well look after and is learning to her best abilty I woul recommend any mother to join the monessori family :)
