About Us

The Maria Montessori Preschool in Wheelers Hill has been teaching preschoolers using this unique approach to child learning for over 40 years. The Maria Montessori Preschool adheres to the following principles and approaches in the education of preschoolers under its care:

We combine learning with play, thus making learning a joyful and spontaneous experience.

We encourage the innate creative abilities of our children through experiential learning and sensorial methods – seeing, touching, listening, smelling, tasting, dancing, singing and artwork. Specially designed equipment facilitate this process.

We provide an environment in which the child learns at his or her pace.

We give children individual attention. Personal development needs and capabilities are identified and then addressed through ways, which the child enjoys and feels encouraged.

Maria Montessori Pre-School is staffed by a team of qualified, experienced and caring teachers. The school operates in accordance with the Department of Education and Training regulations. We ensure that the school environment is open, well lit and airy, yet cozy and comfortable. We have two large well-equipped classrooms dedicated to the three year old and four year old programs, and a well-equipped and large play area that gives students ample room for supervised outdoor activity.

  • Practical Life - Teach children to care for self, care for the environment, control of movement and grace and courtesy
  • Sensorial - Help the child experience primarily in identifying distinctions between similar and different things.
  • Language - Provide a program where reading, writing, listening and speaking is taught as joint units through storytelling, rhymes, songs, games etc.
  • Mathematics - Demonstrate an understanding of measurement and number using concrete experiences and moving to abstract
  • Social & emotional skills - Develop through play, motivation, positive separation, resilience, making decisions, managing behavior, resolving conflict and anger
  • Music, art and craft - Encourage children in creative arts through drama, dance, painting, drawing, music and movement
