Collaborative Community Relationships

“We shall walk together on this path of life; for all things are a part of the Universe, and we are all connected with each other to form one whole unity.” - Maria Montessori

Beechworth Montessori School was established through the goodwill of its members and a shared vision of providing opportunity for children to be educated in the Montessori way. This shared vision is based on a belief in the Montessori pedagogy and a commitment to respectful, supportive relationships with all community members in an environment of open, honest, transparent and ethical communication. An active parent community through a functioning Parents & Friends Group enables links between the Principal, staff, parents and children.

The Parents and Friends group enables social and fundraising opportunities that support the ethos of the school and the Montessori philosophy.

Maria Montessori recognised the universality of all life and our interconnectedness.

Beechworth Montessori School aims to:

  • Acknowledge parents as partners with educators in the education of their children.
  • Collaborate with other organisations to enhance children’s learning and well- being.
  • Seek opportunities for development via engagement with the wider community; local, national, international.
  • Create awareness of how the world is connected whether directly or indirectly to the child and that what we do affects the lives of others.
