Our Statement of Philosophy

Beechworth Montessori School fosters each child's natural desire to learn, guiding them to grow into respectful, independent and confident adults who contribute positively to the world.

“Fostering the Potential of Every Child – Education for Life”


Leadership and Service Management

“It is responsibility that a leader should feel, not the authority of his position.” - Maria Montessori

The Principal and Committee of Management will be Montessori orientated and understand the specific aspects of the Montessori pedagogy whilst maintaining compliance in an educational climate of increasing accountability. Effective leadership promotes a positive organisational culture and builds a professional learning community. Administrative systems enable the effective management of a quality service through enabling continuous improvement. The Committee of Management and Principal will make informed and ethical decisions that advance the current and future development of the school.

Beechworth Montessori School aims to:

  • Engage in best practice governance, business and administration practices.
  • Ensure financial accountability and transparency.
  • Ensure the school is in a sound financial position.
  • Ensure the ongoing financial viability of the school.
  • Ensure compliance with State and Federal Government regulations.
  • Apply for and maintain Montessori Quality Assurance.
