Montessori Academy Clayton caters for children aged 6 weeks to 6 years in a nurturing Montessori environment. The educators make daily observations and personalise each child’s curriculum to meet their needs and interests. Outside, there are separate play spaces for different age groups. In the infants playground the children can play in the sandpit, on the climbing equipment or the slide. The area also has gardens and soft play areas.

The staff at Clayton Montessori are all so amazing. They go above and beyond for my child. I trust them they are very honest with me with my child which I appreciate as it's very hard to find centres like this. The staff work very hard when delivering the daily routine to all the families. The staff are very welcoming and warm my child took a liking to the centre and staff on his first day. The equipment and activities are outstanding and change all the time. I highly recommend to enrol your child here. Rebecca

Our son has been attending Montessori academy Clayton since he was 11 months old. He is now 3.5 years old. He absolutely loves it and we couldn’t feel more comfortable with the care and education he receives. He has developed so much (both socially and emotionally) and comes home telling us the amazing things he is learning. The educators are all caring, friendly and clearly love what they do. We would not hesitate to recommend this place.

I enrolled by daughter to this centre when she was 13 months old. The care and affection that she has received here is incredible. As a parent it puts my mind at ease to know she is continually being looked after well in our absence. Her eagerness to return to childcare every morning is a testament to that fact. The professionalism of the educators is commendable. I have periodically received apt feedback from them on my child’s strengths and development and absolutely impressed with their practice of encouraging the children in their area of interest. My daughter loves music and listening to her singing new songs (not just rhymes) but also about plant growth is a very creative way of introducing simple concepts to children. With no second thoughts, I have enrolled my son here too and so far he is having a lovely time in the care of the amazing staff in the Babies room. Delighted to be a part of the Montessori Academy Clayton Family

I am so grateful for all the hard work, help and care which all the educators give to all the children. The educators, who are academically certified and trained, hold many years of experience and apply all their knowledge in the different teaching and learning styles which they offer to all the children. I feel their educational curriculum; materials and programs help with the children’s overall learning and development in such a beneficial and positive way. My daughter has really enjoyed and continues to enjoy her experience at Clayton Montessori Academy. Her overall learning, development, confidence and independence have grown so much since she has been attending the childcare facility. I would definitely recommend Clayton Montessori Academy to anyone looking to send their child/children to a Montessori based childcare. Thank you so much to the management and all the educators for the amazing work you continue to do.

We have (recently) moved our children from another centre to Montessori Academy in Clayton and have had a wonderful and easy going experience here. In the past 2 months since our children started at the centre, they have made amazing progress. The activities are really great for them (and the food too, great variety).The centre staff are wonderful, and caring. I am very happy the children are in this centre, I recommend it.

My son has been with the Clayton Montessori since he was 2 and half years and is currently in Kinder. I highly recommend this Montessori, as the staff are so loving and caring towards the kids. They are very professional and ensure that the kids have a good understanding about life skills and about awareness of their surroundings. My son comes home and is able to read and write alphabets and numbers without any help. I absolutely love that he can start prep knowing he is ready and will be comfortable and confident. Thank you guys for such a great network, always working and helping each other!!

Our child has been attending Clayton Montessori Academy for over six months. I have nothing but good things to say about the centre. The educators are careful, kind and compassionate and connect with children really well. The effort put in helping the children learn and become independent really shows. Keep up the good work Montessori Academy!
