The Gap Montessori is a welcoming Children's House providing a relaxed and homely atmosphere where children can feel happy and secure.
"Our care of the child should be governed not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence" - Maria Montessori
The Gap Montessori is a family owned centre that embraces the Montessori Philosophy. We welcome all children and their families and pride ourselves on our inclusive and diverse community. We believe that the Early Years are the most important for the growing child echoing Maria Montessori’s vision that “….the tiny child’s absorbent mind finds all its nutriment in its surroundings.”
Our environment both inside and outside support the developmental needs of every child facilitating their unique qualities. Children learn at their own pace gaining independence, confidence and competence with the gentle guidance of our trained educators. Our aim is to foster joyful lifelong learners that can grow into compassionate and resilient adults.
We are open 50 weeks a year from 6.30am to 6.00pm (excluding Public Holidays and a two-week Christmas closure)

As an educator for over 10 years of experience, I am passionate about the Montessori philosophy. My work in state schools, including special schools and long day care environments has given me a strong background to draw from. The Montessori Philosophy excites me as I see the children develop new concepts, language, empathy and respect for their friends and the environment. The children’s intrinsic motivation can be seen daily as they choose freely to explore, discover and investigate their environment. Each child’s interests are extended and their unique qualities celebrated.
