About Us

Brisbane Montessori School is a leading co-educational independent Montessori school in Brisbane founded in 1981. The school is committed to delivering the highest standard of Montessori education, inspiring students aged 15 months - 16 years to realise their true potential in an enriching, inclusive and diverse community environment. Our purpose-built learning environments are designed to spark student interest, develop critical thinking skills, and foster a sense of achievement and self-worth, within a non-competitive setting.

A truly unique educational experience, the school is fortunate to offer students and staff picturesque views of the Brisbane River and an abundance of open space and fresh air, just 12km from the Brisbane Central Business District. Fostering a vibrant and fulfilling workplace environment is at the forefront of all that we do, with a strong focus on staff well-being and professional development. Multiple corporate discounts are available through our human resource providers, with a range of staff well-being programs such as yoga also offered throughout the year. We employ staff who are driven and energetic professionals with a passion for education and nurturing the next generation.

We offer the following Montessori programmes:

  • Montessori Independent Toddler Community (15 months – 3 year olds)
  • Children's House (3 – 6 year olds)
  • Lower Primary (6 – 9 year olds)
  • Upper Primary (9 – 12 year olds)
  • Middle School & Year 10 (12 – 16 year olds)

Our school delivers the Montessori National Curriculum as approved by ACARA, the national body that approved the Australian National Curriculum in 2012. The Montessori Curriculum is mapped against the Australian National Curriculum. We facilitate a child-centred pedagogical model tailored to individualised and independent learning with respect to the child's social, emotional, and intellectual development.
