Our Mission

Montessori Life Primary is passionately committed to enriching the lives of children and their parents: to provide them with a safe, courteous, respectful environment in which to grow intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally. 

Our goal is to make a significant and lasting impact in the lives of anyone coming into contact with Montessori Life Primary.

We aim to achieve this by:

- Cultivating within our students the passion for excellence in everything that they do both in and outside our school.
- Nurturing the curiosity, creativity and imagination born within us all
- The development of a strongly held set of universal values which includes self-respect, respect for others, honesty, integrity, responsibility, empathy, compassion, kindness, peacefulness, a sense of concern for others, warmth and love of community.
- Celebrating diversity in our community and the global community.
- Acknowledging the unique contribution of all individuals who enrich and inspire our personal growth.
- A commitment to give something back through service to others who are in need.
