My Montessori

My Montessori is an independent community based school dedicated to laying the foundation for your child’s future and designed to increase parent’s awareness of their child’s capabilities and need for independence, through the use of Montessori principles and rich resources. Children will have the opportunity to learn and adopt vital life skills such as respect, responsibility, confidence, independence, emotional regulation, critical thinking and problem solving through a series of parent/child group programs that we run for 0 – 3 years old as well as a preschool program for children between 3-6 years old. My Montessori is proud to be a pioneer in the sector being the very first traditional Montessori school within Blacktown City Council. My Montessori is a hands on, sensory and tactile environment where your child can explore, grow and develop at his/her own pace through the guidance of the teachers.
