Cairns Montessori incorporates the principals of Montessori Learning. The Montessori philosophy was
developed by Dr Maria Montessori (1870-1952). Maria Montessori started her work with children with
intellectual disabilities; under her guidance these children who were deemed ‘uneducable’ sat regular
school examinations with incredible results. From here, Montessori decided to apply her approach to
children of ‘normal abilities’.
Your children are cared for in an environment that supports and encourages their natural learning development.
Play activities and learning programs are provided which children use at their own pace, building self-confidence,
inner discipline, a sense of self-worth and instils positive social behaviours.
At Cairns Montessori your children will develop a life-long love of learning allowing them to reach their full potential.
