Montessori Madness by Trevor Eissler

Montessori has been developed over more than a century and at all times has been based on rigorous research and observation of children.

Recently, the government initiative “Review to Achieve Educational Excellence in Australian Schools” or “Gonski 2.0” report, came to the same conclusion authentic Montessori schools have known for decades:  the learning growth of each student needs to  be at the centre of the education model. 

Montessori is a leader in this field. You can find out more about this from Montessori Australia here.

Importantly, Canberra Montessori School is the only Montessori school in Canberra to have achieved full registration with Montessori Australia, a national Montessori Quality Assurance Programme (MQAP) established to identify the Quality Standards for Montessori programmes and to support schools and centres in maintaining these standards. This is your assurance that Canberra Montessori School delivers authentic Montessori programmes in line with the rigorous requirements of MQAP.

We have provided an overview of some key concepts here, but please do feel free to stop past the Office and borrow additional resources from our Parent Library should you like more information.
