Gungahlin Child Care & Early Learning Campus Overview

Gungahlin Montessori Academy is an exceptional Montessori long day care catering to children aged 0 - 6 years. The campus is located at Suite One, Level One, Gungahlin Marketplace 33 Hibberson St, Gungahlin ACT 2912.

Most unique about Gungahlin Montessori Academy, is our scientifically based approach to learning that is focused on the holistic development of the child. We believe that every child is a natural born scientist, and that the world is their laboratory.

Through the Montessori Method of Education, we deliver hands-on learning experiences tailored to each unique child. We believe that our role as Montessori Educators is to provide our students with the educational support, learning opportunities, and tools that they need to master the knowledge and skills that will help them achieve their full potential.

Ultimately, our goal is to activate each child's own "inner teacher" so that they actively participate and embrace education as a foundation for life.
