Stephen Bradford

I am father to Saminda (Amanzi) and Sonali (Dunnart) and husband to Madi. I’m passionate about Montessori education and the principles relating to how a prepared environment facilitates the realisation of full human potential. My ‘Montessori education’ started from conversations with my mother-in-law (40+ years as Montessori teacher/principal) and my investigation of some of Dr Montessori’s writings over 15 years ago. As a family, our children have attended multiple Montessori schools in Sydney – Inner Sydney Montessori School (ISMS) and Cameragal, before being fortunate enough to move to Brisbane Montessori School. My background is as research scientist and more recently in supporting universities and small businesses to commercialise technology.
