We are fortunate to offer our children an education in a unique location along the banks of the Brisbane River. Approximately 12km from the city, our school nests in a beautiful nature reserve where our children enjoy an abundance of fresh air, shady trees and open space.
The Brisbane Montessori School was incorporated as a company in 1981 following the vision of a group of five dedicated parents who shared a dream of providing a Montessori Primary School education for their children.
In 1982 the Brisbane Montessori School commenced a primary school programme with one voluntary teacher and five children whose first classroom was the verandah of an old Queenslander.
In November 1989 a milestone in the history of the school was achieved. After seven years in various temporary premises our school occupied the first stage of its own new and permanent home at Fig Tree Pocket. The school was formally opened by the Lord Mayor of Brisbane and in 2012 celebrated our 30th Anniversary. Since these modest beginnings, our school has grown to be one of the largest Montessori schools in Australia.
We currently have the following Montessori programmes:
- Nido Community (0 – 3 year olds)
- Montessori Independent Toddler Community (15 months – 3 year olds)
- Children’s House (3 – 6 year olds)
- Lower Primary (6 – 9 year olds)
- Upper Primary (9 – 12 year olds)
- Middle School (12 – 15 year olds)
Our school delivers the Montessori National Curriculum as approved by ACARA, the national body that approved the Australian National Curriculum in 2012. The Montessori Curriculum has been mapped against the Australian National Curriculum so that parents can feel assured that children attending Brisbane Montessori School are covering approved content.
All families who are interested in Montessori education are also invited to attend a tour and a one-hour observation of the age group matching your children. You are welcome to attend any of the Montessori Parent Education programmes on our school calendar. Please phone the school on (07) 3327 0600 to book these appointments.
