About Blue Gum Montessori Preschool Incorporated
Blue Gum Montessori School (BGMS) is a boutique school which was was established by passionate parents in 1983. It is a private, independent and non-denominational school, situated on the edge of the wetlands in Bibra Lake, Perth.
The School is committed to educating the children as citizens of the 21st Century. Implementing the Montessori Method of Education, the School offers a prepared Montessori learning environment that fosters the children’s innate desire to learn and encourages the development of their independence.
The activities and materials are scaffolded in complexity to meet the natural phases of child development providing opportunities for critical thought and problem solving. The ages of the children in each class span a three year period, 3-6, 6-9, 9-12, providing many possibilities for the development of social skills and self awareness. Peer coaching and collaborative learning is encouraged and supported in a strong culture of positive education.
This framework, together with various academic skills, provides a firm foundation for the children to be motivated individuals and to be able to develop to their full potential.
