School Readiness (3-6 years) 

The journey of independence. Filling the big gap between childcare/kindergarten and primary school. Our School Readiness Program (3-6 years) prepares children with the foundational knowledge and skills to transition confidently to any school setting. 

Our curriculum covers areas such as practical life skills, sensory development, literacy and numeracy, science, geography, art and music. These areas provide the best foundation as children prepare for their transition to school, and beyond. In addition to our Montessori Language Area, we also use THRASS as the basis for phonics teaching. We work with our families in partnership to empower students in reading, spelling, writing and reading comprehension to enable them to reach their full potential before going to primary school. We are preparing children for primary school and beyond.

Joyful Montessori has an engaging learning environment, individualised approach and nurturing teachers. My daughter absolutely loves going to Montessori and often asks when she will be going next! We couldn’t be more happy with Ashley and the team at JM.

Our last day at Joyful Montessori for the term. We farewelled our friends and amazing teacher Ashley before our move back to the coast. Cannot recommend enough. Arlo went from hiding under the couch not wanting to go to 3YO Kinder to now hurrying me up in the mornings so we weren’t late to Montessori class!

The best decision I have made was to bring my little one to Joyful Montessori. Starting off in the parent child program was a perfect introduction to the Montessori approach. Now starting in the school readiness program Ashley and her team went above and beyond to make a smooth transition for us all. Seeing our little ones excitement and progress each week is all thanks to the hard work and dedication the team do to ensure our child is reaching those milestones and thriving socially, emotionally. We cannot thank you enough, Ashley, Sabrina and Maddy for creating such a nurturing space.
