The Hills Montessori School



It is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. The Hills Montessori School is an independent parent/staff run school located in an idyllic bush setting in Aldgate proudly offering an education founded on the Montessori philosophy and Montessori principles of education.

We currently offer programs from birth until Year 10. In 2011 we opened the first Montessori Middle School in South Australia which is located at the Wairoa Campus in Stirling and currently caters for 12-16 year olds.

The Hills Montessori School provides students with a secure, happy and rich environment where they learn at their own rate undertaking tasks appropriate to their level of development in a caring and non-competitive environment. The Hills Montessori School philosophy is based on the universal values of self respect, respect for others and respect for the environment, fostering a love of learning and a sense of community responsibility.

For more than 35 years The Hills Montessori School has been educating children and supporting and encouraging them to become self-motivated learners who will act responsibly and embrace the future with confidence and a positive outlook.

I encourage you to browse through our website and to attend one of our Open Days or make an appointment to visit us in the near future. I invite you to join us at our regular parent information evenings to learn more about Montessori education.

I warmly welcome you to our school.
