Principal's Welcome

“Our care of the child should be governed not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” Dr Maria Montessori.

Our school is unique in many ways, however our strength lies in providing a Montessori education using the Montessori philosophy, and for children in primary and middle school, this is blended with the Australian Curriculum. It’s an inspiring educational environment that empowers individuals to realise their full potential. 

Here at Brisbane Montessori School, we aim to provide students with an educational foundation from which they can fulfil their potential; developing independence, social, and critical thinking skills. The program is centred around the student and encourages the development of personal responsibility, critical thinking processes and independence, while fostering a love of learning. 

Families typically choose a Montessori School for educational and child development reasons. This approach to education is based on a 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 dynamic atmosphere in which they 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 a tour. You are also invited to attend our Montessori Explained Seminars which we run once each term. Alternatively, if you are a parent or friend of our current community, I encourage you to stay up-to-date with our news and events through our newsletter Pathways, or our social media. Your interest and contribution is highly valued. 

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