Welcome to Eucalyptus Montessori, Childcare Centre & Preschool in Canberra
Welcome to Eucalyptus Montessori. Established in 2017, Eucalyptus Montessori offers 3 unique long day care learning environments for children aged from 3 months to 6 years of age.
Reflecting the highest standards in early childhood programming, our dedicated and experienced staff are committed to providing stimulating learning environments that are geared towards the child - enabling them to proceed at their own pace in a non-competitive environment to explore, experiment and develop their love of learning.
Eucalyptus Montessori’s facilities have been specifically designed by a leading Australian architectural firm to draw upon the natural concepts of beauty, harmony, simplicity and order. The centre has been carefully planned to take full advantage of the self-motivation and unique learning abilities of all children. It provides children with the freedom to follow their natural tendencies towards independence, exploration, co-operation, order, repetition, imagination and communication.

“Montessori education begins at birth and is an education for life.”
The Montessori approach to education aims for the fullest possible development of children, with the view to preparing them for life’s many rich experiences. Developed by Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952), the approach maintains that:
- every child possesses an intrinsic drive to explore, to discover, to learn;
- in a stimulating environment the child will spontaneously engage in exploratory tasks;
- in doing so the child unconsciously constructs his own personality.
A truly educated individual continues learning long after the hours in the classroom because of motivation
from within and a natural curiosity and love of knowledge”To further explore the Montessori approach to education,
