School History

Our 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 1984, Brisbane Montessori School commenced a primary school program with one voluntary teacher and five children whose first classroom was the verandah of an old Queenslander. 

In November 1989, the school achieved a historical milestone. After seven years in various temporary premises, our school occupied the first stage of its own, a new and permanent location in Fig Tree Pocket. The school was formally opened by the Lord Mayor of Brisbane and in 2022 celebrated our 40th Anniversary. Since these modest beginnings, our school has grown to be one of the largest Montessori schools in Australia.

We encourage you to take a moment to watch our exciting new Facilities Master Plan. This Master Plan enables us to provide a Montessori Education for all.
