Snowgum – 18 months to 3 years

Children with early exposure to a Montessori education have lifelong benefits including better academic outcomes (particularly in Maths and Science), increased levels of social maturity and sensitivity, and better executive function skills. We are the only Montessori school in Canberra fully registered with the Montessori Quality Assurance Program so you can be sure your child will receive the special guidance that Montessori promises.

This program provides an opportunity for children to learn through movement and their experiences within the Montessori highly prepared environment. In  this respectful, peaceful space they can  develop their independence, self-confidence, language skills and their sense of self. Our room is purpose designed and seen as an extension of the home, enticing children to work and engage with the activities and environment, and fulfilling their need for order and repetition.
