Montessori Minds Childcare and Kindergarten is dedicated to offering high-quality Montessori education for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years, unlocking their full potential in mind, body, and soul. Inspired by the success of HCMC, we noticed the limited availability of Montessori centres in Geelong, particularly during the critical 0-6 developmental years when 90% of brain development occurs.

Montessori Curriculum: Igniting the Spark of Genius in Every Child
Our Montessori Curriculum is a dynamic framework tailored to children's developmental needs and interests. It encompasses five key areas: practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language, and culture. As children progress, they encounter increasingly challenging materials suitable for their age and abilities, emphasising that learning is a personalised, age-independent process.

Our Vision: Foster a love for learning, empowering children with knowledge, a positive attitude, self-construction skills, and a deeper understanding of the world.

Our Mission: Provide a stimulating, multi-sensory environment where children engage in purposeful learning activities to shape their identities and realise their full potential.

Philosophy: Recognising the unique competence of each child, we encourage exploration, discovery, and learning within a supportive environment. Our individualised development program fosters self-paced, purposeful engagement, aligning with the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) and enriching it through Montessori principles. Our teachers facilitate learning, offer guidance, and create conducive learning environments. Our adaptable spaces challenge children to grow, while our community empowers students, staff, and families through access to resources and support.

Our Educational Programs
Unlike traditional classrooms, our Montessori learning programs are customised to match each child's developmental stage. Learning centres on the child's activity and independence, allowing them to explore their needs moment by moment. Our approach fosters lasting intellectual skills within a social and emotional learning framework.

Montessori Education: Nurturing Individual Growth
Each child is unique and deserves personalised guidance for their development. We embrace the belief that children can thrive without rigid rules. Our Montessori approach equips them with the tools to become independent and critical thinkers, aligning with Dr. Maria Montessori's principles of spontaneous learning.

Commitment and Passion
Our specially trained teachers instil independence and purpose in children. They create a "prepared environment" with structured access to educational materials. This Montessori setting fosters various developmental opportunities, including movement, challenging tasks, concentration, and freedom. It also offers captivating resources and activities that spark children's interest and encourage purposeful activities, enhancing their engagement and judgment.

"The Prepared Environment Is for Independence and Growth. The first aim of the prepared environment is to render the growing child independence of the adult. This is, it is a place where he can do things for himself – live his own life – without the immediate help of adult. Therefore, the environment is the place where the children are to be increasingly active, and the teacher is increasingly passive."
