About Us:

Building Futures Montessori, across three locations in Brisbane, is South East Queensland’s leading Montessori childcare company and training college, with locations in Forest Lake, Wavell Heights and Blackstone. We currently employ 100+ staff and are expanding in centre size, into new locations and into affiliated businesses. For instance, as well as our core childcare centres we also own and operate a family day care service and our registered Montessori Training College trains both our own people, plus staff from several externally-owned centres.

Our success has been driven by our belief in best-practice child-care which led to the adoption of the Montessori methodology, and our team of well-trained and enthusiastic people. All our educators are Montessori qualified or working towards a Montessori qualification. This enables us to offer a childcare service second-to-none.

With more than 10% of employees having served with this family-owned company for more than 10 years, you aren’t just gaining a job, but an opportunity for professional growth within a stable and supportive environment.
