Barrenjoey Montessori School is a non-denominational, not for profit school nestled behind the beautiful sand dunes of North Avalon on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. The school buildings have been designed to complement the natural environment and an ongoing sustainability audit encourages awareness in all aspects of operation. The School Board includes parents and community members and an experienced Montessori Principal ensures that authentic Montessori experiences embracing all aspects of development are provided to each child. ‘Education for life’ is the school motto.

The educators are carefully chosen for their knowledge and skills with all teachers having both Montessori and mainstream qualifications and many years of experience. The school is registered with the Board of Studies, Teaching and Education Standards and the Department of Education and Communities. The school participates in the Montessori Quality Assurance Program and has achieved the ‘registered’ level.

We provide a 0-3 program for the child with their parent / carer each morning with specifically prepared learning spaces for children from birth to 18 months (Nido) and 18 months to 3 years of age (Parent Toddler Program).

The 3 – 6 classrooms (preschool and Kindergarten year) and the 6 – 9 classroom are beautiful environments with a full range of Montessori materials, the 3 year mixed age group, indoor / outdoor environment and the 3 hour work cycle respected at all times.

The 6 – 9 classroom commenced in 2012 and building on the foundations gained from previous experiences allows for each child to extend their curiosity and love of learning to gain skills and knowledge in all areas of their development.

The school invites interested parents and others to visit the school to gain a greater insight and understanding of the Montessori approach to education.
