Welcome to The Montessori School Kingsley.

As Australia’s longest-running Montessori school and the first in the world to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB), we have a rich tradition grounded in the philosophy of Montessori education and the science of how children learn.

We cater to children aged 3 to 18 in mixed-age classrooms. From pre-primary education to the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (a globally recognised tertiary entrance qualification), our individually tailored learning pathways equip your child to thrive as a confident, resilient young adult in a world full of possibilities.

Our school

Montessori: Help me to do it myself

In Montessori education, we treat your child as an individual. We nurture every aspect of their development – physical, intellectual, social – in a safe, inclusive environment that mirrors life.

The Montessori pedagogy is founded on a scientific understanding of childhood and the development of the body and mind. It’s an education designed with and for your child, providing the structure, freedom and guidance they need to learn at their pace, in a way that fosters respect – for self, for others, and for learning.

Learn more about Montessori or allow us to guide you through enrolment.

Visit or take a tour. Experience our Montessori school yourself.

If you are interested in enrolling your child, we encourage you to take a tour or join us for a classroom visit.

Classroom visits, or ‘observations’, give you a fly-on-the-wall insight into the Montessori education environment. Alternatively, take a one-on-one tour of our school with Principal Des Reuben, or sign up for one of our Open House where parents of current students will show you around.
