Director of Early Childhood Education Services

Susan Chahwan’s initial exposure to teaching was Music Education when she studied a Dip.Mus.Ed. (Sydney Conservatorium). As a parent with a passion for Montessori Education, Susan bought a childcare centre and attained a Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood) and then the AMI 3-6 Diploma in Sydney. After a decade of classroom experience, Susan was mentored by Mrs W. Duyker de Vries who was the founder of the Montessori School in Perth (for children from 3 years to the International Baccalaureate). Susan now calls her centres Montessori Works because she firmly believes that Montessori education does work for the sustainable future of all people for a peaceful world.
