“So what is Montessori anyway?”

We’ve all had it happen. You’re in a conversation with a neighbour, co-worker or stranger and they ask where your children go to school. You mention something about The Montessori School Kingsley and then the inevitable comes: “So what is Montessori anyway?”

You give your best answer off the top of your head, trying to remember what you wished you had said the last time someone asked this same question. You make a few good points, the conversation continues for a while, and then you eventually say goodbyes. However, for the rest of the day, you kick yourself for not delivering a brilliant and illuminating pitch for Montessori!

So, here is your chance!

Montessori Australia, whose mission is to support the natural development of the child through Montessori education, is holding an Elevator Speech Video Contest, which they will use at the Montessori Together Conference, 2-3 October 2021.

You can find out more information here:


While you would need to attend the conference to claim your prizes, anyone can submit entries for the contest!

If you are keen to deliver your very own Montessori Elevator Pitch – in 60 seconds, we’d love to see it! And we would love to share it on our website and social media platforms as well!
