A happy child
and a better
world.

What more could a parent want?

Today, more than ever, we believe a better world starts with a better education. One that helps not only to create change for good, but one that helps children cope with change. Or better still, thrive on it.

By the time your children finish school, the speed of change will be almost unimaginable.

Trying to predict that future is futile. Even if we do, it will only change again.

At Montessori East we prepare your children for change itself, so they become confident, resilient, compassionate human beings capable to take on whatever the world offers.

Testimonials.

Dr Morsy - Montessori Parent

Dr Leila Morsy

University Professor and educator

"I have been an educator for 20 years, and an education researcher for half of that time. Montessori East is the most extraordinary school I’ve encountered. I say this because it enables children to pay attention. It nurtures children’s self-reliance. It fosters children’s intrinsic motivation. And it supports extraordinary teachers to help children realise this. My children joined from mainstream environments (and) they integrated into the school as if it were the most natural thing in the world … because the Montessori approach benefits how children naturally learn, and keeps pace with the individual child. Montessori East is a community that taught me how to be a better parent; how to loosen my grip on my children so that they could thrive; how to approach their lives with curiosity, wonder, gratitude, and grace. It showed me a gentler, kinder way forward."

Counselor

"There are so, so many things I love about Montessori East - the education my children receive is only one of them. ME shares my parenting philosophies and wants for my children: that they are kind, gracious, caring, compassionate, independent, respectful and attain all the other 'soft' skills necessary for strong, healthy and meaningful relationships. The gift I never saw coming was the introduction to the community that not only provides a great network of friends for my children, but nourishes my own soul in a way I cannot describe. I have made friends with parents at the school which I know will survive well past my children's time at ME. I honestly believe that my two boys could not have been in a better environment in their formative years."

"We have watched our children blossom into confident, independent little people during their time at Montessori East. They are treated respectfully by their teachers and the staff, and their love for learning is inspirational. We choose Montessori East because we believe that the emphasis on nurturing independence and the child's desire to learn are important skills for life."

Justin - Montessori parent

"Our sons are thriving at ME. They are strong-willed boys who were always going to enjoy the privilege of choice which ME provides. The prolific decision-making builds their intelligence and wisdom and as parents we see their decisions constantly improve. In parallel, the freedom of choice incubates growing curiosity combined with initiative to create. The strong values of the school give our boys the best opportunity for nurturing friendships. And, of course, we parents similarly benefit from a strong community. ME was recommended to us. We read about it, attended an observation and met with Bill Conway, the Principal. We sent our son to the Toddler program before his commencement at the school. Throughout, we had never experienced such grace, insight, vision in another educational institution. The wisdom and rigor of the Montessori method combined with ME’s tenderness led by Bill presented the optimal formula for our children to thrive."

The Coming
of LIFE.

A Montessori East musical production.

The primary school children produced this musical journey through the Second Great Lesson with the guidance of The House that Dan Built. They spent months writing the storyline and lyrics to the songs, creating the artworks and recording the singing and dialogue which The House turned into an animated digital show. It's a true collaborative effort of which we are so very proud.
