Melbourne Montessori School (MMS) is an independent school for children from birth to 15 years of age.

There are two campuses, one in South Caulfield and the other in East Brighton, both close to the CBD. Each has outdoor play space with interesting structures, and classrooms equipped with beautifully designed Montessori materials. These environments are prepared for children at each developmental level, and allow children to take responsibility for their own education. As a result our students develop a life-long passion for learning.

In 2015 MMS received an Overall Exceeding NQF rating for the Cycle 1 (3 - 5 years) environment.

A Montessori education will give your child:

• the opportunity to work at their own pace in a non-competitive environment;

• the opportunity to follow their natural curiosity;

• systematic steps in learning, from the concrete to the abstract; and

• an environment of stability, respect, order and beauty.

All classes are multi-age, giving each child the opportunity to learn from others and the flexibility to develop their personality at their own pace, both socially and intellectually. Children usually stay with the same teacher for three years, and this leads to strong teacher-student bonds and a deep understanding by the teacher of individual student characteristics.

As well as our high quality Montessori curriculum delivery, we offer a strong Music program incorporating a school band program, a high quality art program, weekly physical education and Italian lessons.

We also offer after school clubs including yoga, band, chess and sport.

There is a high quality After School Care program operating from the end of the school day until 6:30pm at Caulfield Primary School for those who need care after school. Each day the children will be walked by our dedicated staff member to the Caulfield Primary After School Care Programme.

We view each child's education at Melbourne Montessori School as a strong partnership between home and school. We appreciate the strong sense of community that we all work hard to achieve and welcome the involvement of parents on many levels.

Our school is committed to the highest quality of Montessori practice. Our membership with MAF assists us in continually working towards this goal.
