As Principal of Brisbane’s only Montessori School, it is my privilege to lead our diverse and welcoming community.

Our school is unique in many ways but foremostly we provide a Montessori education using the Montessori philosophy, and for those children in primary and middle school, this is also blended together with the Australian Curriculum. It’s an inspiring educational environment that empowers individuals to realise their full potential.

Here at Brisbane Montessori we aim to provide children with an educational foundation from which they can fulfil their potential, developing independence, social and critical thinking skills. The programme is centred on the child and encourages the development of personal responsibility, critical thinking processes, independence and fosters a love of learning.

Families choose a Montessori School for educational and child development reasons. The approach to education is based on scientific understanding of how a child develops and learns. Educationally the child is at the centre of their learning; at their own pace with scope to pursue their own interests. The integrated curriculum and multi-age classrooms provide the student with a place where children love to learn.

A child’s development of self-awareness and enjoyment of differences allows them to experience inner peace and discover who they are in the world.

If you are reading this because you are interested in pursuing a Montessori education for your child, I encourage you to consider booking to attend our Tuesday tours.  You are also invited to attend our Montessori Explained Seminars which we run once a term. You can find out more information about these here. Or if you are a parent or friend of our current community, I invite you to stay up to date with our school news and events through our Pathways newsletter or our facebook pages. Your interest and contribution is valued.

We look forward to supporting your exploration of Montessori education and philosophy.

Yours for our children,

May Selkirk
