Director of Early Childhood Education Services

Susan Chahwan, a trained music teacher (Diploma in Music Education from the Sydney Conservatorium) discovered her a passion for Montessori education after becoming a parent. Susan gained a Diploma of Teaching (Early Childhood) and then the AMI 3-6 Diploma in Sydney. After a decade of classroom experience, she was mentored by Mrs W. Duyker de Vries, who was the founder of The Montessori school in Kingsley Western Australia (for children from 3 years to the International Baccalaureate). Susan now calls her Montessori education and care centres Montessori Works because she firmly believes that Montessori education does work! It works for the sustainable future of all people for a peaceful world.

Susan is currently on the Montessori Australia executive team and a board member.
