About us

‘SA Montessori’ is a group of seven Montessori early learning and care environments in Adelaide.

We are not a franchise – we are a family.

Each of our seven Montessori centres has a unique character and atmosphere but we are united by shared values.

SA Montessori educators are passionate about providing the highest quality early childhood education and care. A child’s early experiences help to form the foundation of their relationship with the world. SA Montessori commits to providing joyful experiences to help each child connect with their community and value their environment.

Our Promise

We aim to nurture the individual development of each child within a loving and exciting environment.

  • Every child is special and unique
  • Every child deserves respect and love
  • Every child should experience a happy childhood

As we share time with the children our aim is to:

  • develop their curiosity
  • encourage their love of learning
  • help them develop independence and self discipline
  • allow them to feel valued
  • share in their joy of self achievement
  • offer comfort and support in an honest and sensitive way
  • provide the best foundation of learning to prepare for future schooling
  • surround them with a secure and happy environment

This is our promise to you.

A Word

From Our Founder

“The Montessori philosophy offers a powerful understanding of how precious the early years of a child’s life are. A parent is given only one opportunity to provide their child the best possible foundation for life. We are proud to offer a home away from home to help your child experience the start that they deserve.”

– Barbara Langford
