Our Brisbane Montessori School community offers early education, kindergarten, and childcare in three locations – Blackstone, Forest Lake and Wavell Heights.

The Montessori approach is based on the assumption that every child is naturally inclined to learn. It is essential that their learning environment facilitates and encourages this innate curiosity. We provide proven support for babies’ physical and emotional development through our early education framework, nurturing their curiosity into a desire for life-long learning.

Hands-on learning is a hallmark of our Building Futures Montessori childcare centre. It is important for children to learn about their surroundings and engage with materials by exploring them. An example might be letting a child manipulate a cube and discover its sides and dimensions by manipulating it rather than being told what a square is. These types of explorations are enjoyable for kids, and they allow them to really internalise and understand concepts.

We offer innovative child care services that include Montessori classrooms. In these programs, children are able to work at their own pace. Each child can progress at their own pace without being pressured to keep up with the rest of the class. As a result, children feel that they are never falling behind or struggling, and they learn to love learning.

Our early years learning framework

Montessori early childhood education emphasizes independent development in young children. Toddlers are encouraged to develop their interests while using the tools and resources of the school. Montessori classrooms provide children with the opportunity to take care of their own personal needs and contribute to the upkeep of their classroom environment from an early age. Young children benefit from this sense of responsibility by gaining confidence and self-esteem, as well as improving their social skills.

Using concrete materials to teach abstract concepts is another crucial component of our Montessori daycare centre. The child will use “manipulatives” (e.g., buttons, beads, blocks) to demonstrate that two plus two equals four rather than simply being told that it does. Play and real learning go hand in hand in this hands-on approach to early learning. This philosophy serves them well later in life and prepares them for continuing education in lower primary and upper primary school, as well as middle school.

Building relationships with students is one of the most important things Montessori teachers do. Their approach is to view each child as an individual with unique needs and preferences. Knowing each child well can help them create an environment that meets their needs and allows them to achieve their potential. As dedicated educators, we strive to create a welcoming learning environment in our early learning centre for both children and their parents.

Our Brisbane Montessori School Classrooms

The Montessori classroom uses hands-on materials to promote learning in all areas of development by allowing children to work independently or in small groups. During the course of the lesson, the teacher serves as a guide to help the student progress at his or her own pace.

At our daycare centre, we offer the following Montessori programmes: 3 different age groups for children aged between 6 weeks and 24 months, 15 and 36 months, and 36 to 72 months.

A Nutritious Food Plan

Montessori schools pay attention to all aspects of child development, and food is an important part of it. All our food is prepared fresh each day by our in-house chef. Nutritious meals provide a strong foundation for effective learning, and we have four menus rotating weekly to ensure variety.
