Our History


The group commenced operations in 1997 as the Beechworth Montessori Children’s Group to provide a Montessori preschool program for three and four year old children. Tiny Tots program was established in 2002 for children aged up to three years and this acts as an introduction for both parents and children to the Montessori philosophy. In 2006 the preschool program expanded to include five year old children.

In 2007 a primary school for children aged 6-12 years old opened, enabling children to complete their early childhood and primary school learning within the Montessori educational philosophy.

Families may continue their Montessori education at the MAP (Montessori Adolescent Program) at Beechworth Secondary College which commenced in 2015.

The Tiny Tots program was established in 2002 for children aged up to three years and this acts as an introduction for both parents and children to the Montessori philosophy. In 2014 an afternoon care program was established for children in the kindergarten program at Beechworth Montessori, allowing more flexibility and greater support for our families. In 2015 this program extended to include children from 12 weeks of age and opened to the wider community.
