About Maroondah Montessori Preschool

Maroondah Montessori Preschool has existed, under various guises, and in a number of locations, since May 1989. It commenced as the Lilydale Child’s Centre in Anderson Street,Lilydale, with a generous parent lending $8,500 to acquire basic equipment to help it get started. In 1993 it moved to Kilsyth, where it was known as Montessori Early Learning Centre (Kilsyth) Inc. until the final move to its current location in Everard Rd, Ringwood Eastin October 1996.

Since its very inception, Maroondah Montessori Preschool has totally relied on the great generosity of time, initiative, hard work and determination of many volunteer parent Committees of Management. Due to a commitment to adhere as strictly as possible to the educational principles espoused by Dr. Montessori, and to deliver a truly authentic Montessori program without compromise, Maroondah Montessori receives no government funding whatsoever.

Children commence the program at the age of 2 ½ years, and attend until the end of the year in which they turn six (ie. for up to 4 years). They attend 5 mornings per week for 3 hours, and eventually also participate in an extended day program for up to 4 afternoons per week as they progress through the program.Maroondah Montessori Preschool employs a very experienced, fully qualified, AMI trained Montessori Directress, Aileen Allen and our experienced Assistant Eunice. The Centre income is derived solely from fees and fundraising activities. With an enrolment of 30 children each year, including siblings, an average of 25 to 28 families successfully fundraise between$10,000 to $12,000 per annum, to keep Centre fees low and to keep such a wonderful program accessible to as many families as possible.

Maroondah Montessori Preschool runs as in incorporated not-profit association and is managed by a voluntary Committee of Management, made up of parents of children who attend.
