Montessori Early Childhood and Primary educators inspire students towards a lifelong love of learning.

Located in Gymea, Sydney Montessori School offers a unique blend of supportive and inspiring education to Sutherland Shire residents, including Montessori Playgroup, Long Day Care, Pre-School and Primary School program.

With a truly child-centred approach, this world renowned methodology nurtures each child and ensures that their social, emotional and academic needs are met. As an educational system, it is used in more than 22,000 schools worldwide.

As each child's program is tailored to their developmental needs, it is normal practice that children are extended where they are more capable and supported if they need more support.

This ensures that students are fully engaged in a wondrous journey of learning.

Children become confident, responsible, independent learners, who trust in their own abilities. The inclusivity and positive social development facilitated by the Montessori program forms the basis for a persistent attachment to learning and knowledge.

Montessori classrooms provide a specially crafted learning environment where children are able to respond to their natural tendency to work. They have an innate passion for learning, and the Montessori classroom encourages this by giving them opportunities to engage in spontaneous, purposeful activities with the guidance of fully trained teachers.

In the younger years, classrooms may have two or three adults to support student learning.

Sydney Montessori's focus on independent learning offers endless opportunities for children to learn how to take responsibility for their actions, to collaborate and work together towards personal and collective goals.

Learning and play environments are specifically designed to suit the different ages of children.

In keeping with the contemporary approaches to education, the school believes that education should foster good character and moral development. Montessori supports children in developing personal attributes which encompass honesty, integrity, dignity, tolerance, respect and community spirit.

Sydney Montessori School runs a Montessori playgroup, a full-time Preschool age program, a Montessori Primary School and a Montessori Long Day Care centre. The School has one of the best teacher-to-student ratios of any school, so students are well supported to achieve their potential.

Whether it is a positive start to learning at school, enrichment or opportunity for growth, the school values the different student abilities, providing opportunities so that each child can excel. They see learning as a partnership between student, teacher and parent.
