Principal's Welcome

“We must look to the children as a vehicle for bringing change to humanity.”

Dr. Maria Montessori

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Perth Montessori.

We hope that children and adolescents from playgroup to high school will thrive in our inclusive, personalised, small school environment.

At Perth Montessori our core purpose is to empower children in an environment based on the values of resilience and respect. Every day in the prepared environment of our Montessori classrooms, our educators strive to realise our shared vision through their child-centred work; encouraging and nurturing students to grow as curious, independent, lifelong learners.

The culture of our classrooms is based on a strong belief in the potential of every student to learn at their own pace, so long as they are treated with respect and given opportunities to discover their passions and acquire skills within a supportive and caring environment. Students are given freedom with responsibility, allowing them to make their own choices but also learn how to take responsibility for these.

Montessori children learn how to learn for themselves from a young age. They are empowered to find their voice and explore their interests under the supportive guidance of the Montessori Director. Our children are uniquely well prepared for what we expect to be an uncertain future.

As you explore this website, I hope that you learn more about our school and about the Montessori philosophy that underpins it. I invite you to reach out to us for further information or to book a tour.

To stay up-to-date with school news and special events, such as open days and parent education sessions, please connect with us on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin.

I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming your child, and you, to our Perth Montessori community soon.
