About Chapel Hill Montessori

A Place to Shine

With our progressive and holistic early childhood education philosophy, we understand that each child has unique needs and interests. We provide the environment and tools your child needs to thrive to the best of their abilities.

When we expose children to different environments and various learning experiences, we allow them to explore their self-awareness and gain a sense of the world around them. Once they leave Chapel Hill Montessori, they’re fully prepared for the next stage of their young lives.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a warm, kind and respectful environment for the children which will:

  • Nurture curiosity, creativity and imagination

  • Inspire a passion for learning

  • Aid the development of resilience and tolerance

  • Honour the legacy of Maria Montessori’s vision for world peace.


Our Philosophy

The Montessori philosophy is an education for life – a learning process where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace in a safe, caring and carefully prepared environment designed to foster independent thinkers who are actively engaged in the learning process.

We seek to create a genuine community spirit by building rapport among teachers, the community, parents and children. At Chapel Hill Montessori, we value the relationship we have with the children’s families. Our goal is to support you in giving your child the best opportunities to achieve their full potential.

We believe the Montessori method of education is “an education for life”. The Montessori philosophy is underpinned by a profound respect for the child. The children learn to respect themselves, respect others and respect their environment. These are lifelong skills.

The Montessori equipment addresses practical life skills, fine motor development, hand eye coordination, development of all the senses, writing, reading, numeracy, geography, history, biology, science, art and music.  By combining all these areas, we give each child a strong foundation for later learning.
