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 prioritise treating each child as a unique individual. Our approach encompasses comprehensive care for their physical, intellectual, and social development within a safe and inclusive environment that reflects real-life situations.

The Montessori pedagogy is rooted in a scientific understanding of childhood and the holistic development of the body and mind. It is a tailored education that is specifically designed with and for your child. We provide a balanced blend of structure, freedom, and guidance, allowing them to learn at their own pace and fostering a deep sense of respect for themselves, others, and the process of learning.

If you wish to delve further into the Montessori philosophy or require assistance with the enrollment process, we are here to offer our expertise and guidance.

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.
