Montessori School

Welcome to Montessori School

We are a dynamic learning community that engages our students in a personalized journey of discovery and challenge. Our program develops the core values of self-confidence, self-directed learning, independence and respect for others and the environment. Each day in Montessori we celebrate the joy of learning and satisfaction of working with purpose.
- Danielle Hourigan, Montessori School Principal


Welcome to our Montessori School at Hillfield Strathallan College. We are CCMA ACCREDITED, upholding the highest standards of an authentic Montessori education.  We offer a program that serves 18 months to 9 year olds.

An HSC Montessori education attends to:

  • Each individual student's ability and preferred learning style.
  • The cultivation of universal values which include self-respect, self-discipline, moral development, empathy and peacefulness.
  • The construction of knowledge through active learning involving concrete experience, reflective observation and abstract conceptualization.
  • work through freedom of choice, self evaluation and a heightened sense of responsibility for their learning.

Our uniquely trained Montessori staff implement strategies that guide the students in their life long educational journey.
