About Us

"To inspire and empower children to become confident, creative, resilient and independent life-long-learners who will share responsibility for making our world better." - Our Vision

Established in 2009 with our Bond Street Mosman Campus, we had a goal of making Montessori Education accessible to children needing Long Day Care. We strove for authenticity in our Montessori education through a commitment to place highly qualified Montessori teachers in every classroom, using quality educational resources and carefully prepared learning environments that is beautiful, connected to nature and inspires children with a love of learning.

What makes Headland Montessori special?

Headland Montessori ELC is an Independent School

During 2017, Headland Montessori became the first ever Childcare Services (Approved Provider) company to be registered as an Independent School in NSW. Our in-house Montessori curriculum mapping gained accreditation with the Department of Education at Kindergarten (Year K) or Prep (in VIC) level. Allowing us to become an Independent School and our children to complete a 3 year Montessori Cycle 1 program from the age of 3 to 6 years. This means our Cycle 1 graduates can move to Year 1 Primary or Cycle 2 Montessori Primary program.

We are Montessori Registered™

Headland Montessori Early Learning has been part of Montessori Australia's Quality Assurance Program since 2015. Our campuses have been quality assessed as Montessori Registered™, which means every classroom have access to qualified Montessori teachers and our programs are authentic to Montessori philosophy and practices.

We collaborate with AMI on 0-3 years Montessori

Since 2012, Headland Montessori have collaborated with AMI's 0-3 years training program by sponsoring their training centre, located in our Manly NSW campus. Through the AMI 0-3 years training program, we were able to develop our educators to be qualified AMI teachers and building our bespoke Nido (0 to 18m) and IC (18m to 3 years) programs.

We collaborate with Melbourne Montessori School

For our centres in VIC, we entered into a collaboration agreement with Melbourne Montessori School to jointly develop and operate a bespoke Montessori Cycle 1 (3-6 Years) Long Day program, allowing our students to transition to Melbourne Montessori School's Cycle 2 primary school program.
