The Montessori classrooms are multi-aged learning environments based on Maria Montessori’s studies and theory of human development.

Our Cycle 1 Program runs for 3 years including Prep, for children aged 3-6 years old. Upon completion, they are eligible to continue with Cycle 2 at Mitcham Primary School - Montessori Stream or another Montessori Cycle 2 of your choosing.
