About Our Montessori Based Pre-School Program

Our program is a Montessori based pre-school program designed for four year olds in the year prior to commencing school. Our aim is to assist each child to become a confident, independent individual with a love of learning.

It is a combination of Montessori education with a traditional pre-school program. We utilise Montessori education methods and Montessori equipment in our academic program each morning and utilise a traditional pre-school program for gross motor activities, social play, craft and themed activities each afternoon.
