Our Philosophies

Preschool Statement of Philosophy

Lindfield Montessori School provides an education for life for all children in our community. We do this by offering a respectful and child-centred service that embodies the Montessori Philosophy within all that we do, such as creating a carefully prepared environment, allowing children choice, providing age-appropriate freedom within limits, encouraging a love of learning and curiosity, and respecting the needs to the child. 

We are committed, as a non-for profit, community-based service to including our families and children in supporting our vision of delivering 'education in harmony with life'.

Our educators follow the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) standard which is the original training developed by Dr. Montessori. The high standards of AMI and the National Quality Standard inform our practice, and we consistently seek ways to ensure the quality and continuous improvement of Lindfield Montessori. 

OOSH Statement of Philosophy

Lindfield Montessori OOSH Services provide high-quality care for children enrolled at Lindfield Montessori School. We do this by offering a relaxed, respectful, child-centred service that has underpinnings of the core values of the Montessori Philosophy within all that we do, such as creating a carefully prepared environment, allowing children choice, providing age-appropriate freedom within limits, encouraging a love of learning and curiosity, and respecting the needs of the child. 

We are committed to incorporating feedback into our planning and programming from our families, our children, and staff, to provide an enjoyable, interesting, and stimulating experience for all children. 

The high standards of the National Quality Standard and AMI core principles inform our practice, and we consistently seek ways to ensure the quality and continuous improvement of our OOSH service at Lindfield Montessori.
