    I've heard it's not 'true Montessori' in their educational approach and only one of the teachers is apparently a trained Montessori teacher.

    The problem with Montessori is any daycare can call themselves a Montessori facility, without any training or without even working within the educational philosophy.

    If you are sending your child there for the philosophy, research the philosophy, then do a days observance to see if they really are what they say they are.

    If you are just sending your child there because it's a day care, then the above is all irrelevant.

    It's an accredited Montessori centre according to the Australian Montessori Foundation. It does have the calmer atmosphere of a Montessori facility. I'm not a huge fan of the method, especially in regard to my son's character, but when I checked it out, it did seem a lot more professional and less chaotic than the other places I looked at.

    Default Montessori Mudgeeraba

    I don't know where Blissedout heard that information however Montessori Gold Coast in Mudgeeraba (nxt door to Aldi) has a Montessori qualified teacher in each of its rooms and those that don't have a formal Montessori qualification attend workshops run by the MAF group. Careful what you hear cos this centre is owned and operated by a nice enough lady and it is not part of a larger group or franchise. Just 2 centres and all of the classes have a Montessori qualified person in contact with the children.
