I am delighted to welcome you to The Montessori School Kingsley.

We are Australia’s longest-running Montessori school with over 60 years in operation. Our school is nestled in natural bushland, overlooking the picturesque Lake Goollelal.

Our school philosophy is underpinned by pure Montessori principles, with the child being at the center of what we do. We currently cater to children aged 3 to 18, starting with pre-primary education until the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) and the International Baccalaureate Careers-related Programme (IBCP) for students in Year 11 and 12. Both qualifications are recognised globally and enable tertiary entry. Our school was the first Montessori school in the world to introduce the IBDP 30 years ago. We are now in the process of building a new facility that will provide multi-purpose spaces to satisfy the growing demand for our senior secondary Montessori/IB education.

Upon entering our school, you will notice our environment is calm and peaceful, which promotes nurturing, curiosity, creativity independence, and a lifelong love of learning. We have a wonderful school with dedicated and highly trained staff, supportive parents, and – above all – extraordinary students. Our school community is diverse with many families and staff coming from countries all over the world.

I feel privileged to lead The Montessori School Kingsley, a school with a long and proud history. I am a passionate and dedicated Montessorian and view the completion of the Association Montessori Internationale – Orientation to Adolescent Studies, at the Hershey School in Ohio (United States), as the most memorable training I have ever undertaken. My personal learning is also never-ending.

Please do not hesitate to contact our school should you wish to undertake a Principal’s tour.

The invitation to visit is also extended to Montessori educators as well as aspirant Montessori educators.

Yours sincerely,

Des Reuben
