We will have Covid-safe protocols in place for our Open Day to protect the health and safety of our community.
 One of our precautions is to ask families to register their intent to attend. This helps us predict the number of visitors so that we can maintain our density requirements. It also provides us with an avenue to contact you directly if any changes are made to the event due to public health restrictions. 
Please use the links below to register your attendance:
Cedars (Unley)  Chancery Lane (CBD)  Jescott (Magill)

Are you feeling concerned about Coronavirus?

We take this public health issue extremely seriously. We are working hard to protect the health and safety of our children, families and team members. We are following all Government recommendations and implementing additional proactive practices to keep our environments hygienic, our community safe, and our learning programs running. We are also striving to support our families – and the broader community – through this difficult time by sharing information, ideas and resources to families in our centre and through our

SA Montessori Facebook page.

We know this is a challenging time but we have always been guided by the insights of Dr Maria Montessori and now, more than ever, we lean on her advice that “Of all things, love is most potent.” With that wisdom in mind we remind our community that we must focus on love, not fear, to help us navigate through this situation.

Our love for the child will inspire us to do everything in our power to protect them.

Our love for our families will ensure that we strive to keep our centres open and functioning as usual so that we can help to maintain the small semblances of consistency that will help balance out all the changes.

Our love for our fellow global citizens will ensure that we all behave responsibly, compassionately and respectfully towards one another to get through this as a community.

About us

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

We are not a franchise – we are a family.

Each of our six 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.

  • 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

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.”
