Olivedale Montessori was founded by Lana Player in 2000.

09:05 – 11:45 Workcycle
11:45 – 12:00 2nd group time and end of toddler day
12:00 - 13:00 Freeplay / extra murals (Children under 3years old are to be collected between 12pm and 1pm)
13:30 - 16:30 After care

 The children receive monthly progress reports which briefly incorporate each area of the prepared environment.

Oral feedback meetings take place in June and a detailed end of year report is given in Dec. 

Olivedale Montessori prides itself in meeting the child’s needs physically, emotionally, cognitively and spiritually.  Our passion for Montessori is acknowledged by the parents of our school and has resulted in close relationships between us.

This is an environment where each child is recognised as the unique individual that they were intended to be.
