I was so anxious sending my child to care but Montessori Smithfield academy made it such an easy process. Staff provides a professional yet family/ home like feel. Can’t go wrong with sending your little ones here. My little one excelled tremendously since starting here two years ago. Thank you Smithfield Montessori academy!

A wonderful Childcare centre with loving and nurturing staff. Zoe the manager is an excellent educator who is constantly trying to improve bother her understanding and the experience of all children who attend. My child was so happy to go and I could see how much the educators cared about him and how much he enjoyed being in their care.

I enrolled my daughter at 2 years old at this centre. I was very anxious as this was my first and only child. The centre manager Miss Zoe and the room leader Miss Ha were amazing. My daughter loves attending the centre and absolutely adores her teachers. They are warm, welcoming and highly professional. I couldn’t be happier with the service and education that my daughter is receiving at this centre. She is thriving in the environment thanks to all the educators. Highly recommend this centre.

Amazing staff with so much heart and caring mindset. It’s wonderful seeing our kids get excited about going to the daycare here. The educators really make an effort to engage the kids and develop them in a very individualised way. My kids have shown great improvement in their speech and problem solving ability. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and we’re very thankful to Zoe and the whole team. I would prefer my kids stay at this daycare centre over taking them to school when the time comes. If I could give them 10 stars I would!!

My daughter started at 4 months and my son at 6 months. I can only say is that Zoe, Andrea and the team at Montessori Smithfield have been nothing but amazing from the very start! I was very anxious when both my kids started and the team always reassured me and made me feel comfortable. Both my kids enjoy going to school and see their educators as if they were family. I have seen such a big difference with their social interactions and learnings that they take back. So happy with their service and would highly recommend them to my family and friends

My son has been enjoying his time since his first day with the Centre's toddlers' room. Staffs are all friendly, caring and professional. Hygiene has also been maintained with a very high standard too. The centre manager has been engaging to the parents so we can keep track of our son's development constantly. I have no doubt in sending my 2nd child into the centre.

My family was new to the area and finding the right place for my kids education, safety and well being while we worked was the hardest thing for me to find. Montessori at Smithfield is THE most perfect and beautiful environment that any baby and toddler can experience. The centre itself and the staff are second to none in the care they provide to the children and families. I’ve never seen my girls so happy to leave the house each day, and also when they come home each day - and that tells me a lot about how they are treated while at preschool. They love and adore their educators and can’t wait to go each day. Zoe and her amazing team should be very proud of the the centre they have built over time and know they are one of a kind.

Smithfield montessori is the best! My son has been attending the childcare since he was 14months so he has been in both the baby and toddlers room. The staff are so caring, so attentive and always happy to answer all my questions and alleviate all the anxieties I had. Even though we moved homes for one year I continued to travel to take him to childcare because I could not find any place that could match Smithfield. If you are contemplating sending your child to Smithfield do not hesitate I cannot recommend it enough from both a parent point of view and from a medical professional point of view.
