"Leo is the luckiest boy in the world to be going to Hope Island Montessori. It is the most nurturing, loving, holistically caring childcare center I have ever come across. Focusing on each child as an individual, every teacher here strives to fulfil all the needs of the children - spiritual, emotional & physical. This kindy supports each child as a unique individual, inspiring the imagination & expanding the child's gifts.
We had a lot of trouble to find the right place for Leo to go to, I don't think we were was asking for much but unfortunately all the mainstream childcare centres Leo went to (which was 3 in total) we just weren't happy with, until we came across this one. It was love at first sight & it been Leo's last year here I know he will miss it immensely. Before Montessori Leo was socially reserved and didn't want to come out of his shell, we were quite worried but knew he was hating the kindy at the time. Literally on the first day at Montessori he completely changed & we were glad that we moved for this center. Best kindy ever!"
"Our daughter has been attending Hope Island Montessori since she was 18 months, nearly a year now. In that time she has blossomed into a more independent, confident child. The guides are committed to nurturing each child based on their individual needs. We couldn't be happier with our choice."
"Our son now has a greater sense of independence when it comes to "big boy" responsibilities. He has benefitted greatly from the practical life experience at day-care. We also love the multicultural aspect. With such a diverse group of teachers and students, Tige has enjoyed learning and recognising new languages and cultural differences. The recent playground upgrade is top notch with so many opportunities for the children to explore and learn through play. This is something we value greatly and feel can be easily attained in this beautiful intimate environment. We are really going to miss the Hope Island Montessori family and we absolutely recommend this quaint school to anyone seeking a nurturing, caring and fun environment for his or her children to flourish”.

I went and visited all the Montessori's in Brisbane and could not find one that was truly 100% authentic to the practice of the Montessori teachings. So I traveled and hour to the last one which was Hope Island. I found what I was looking for! Hope Island Montessori was like coming home and my mother said the same. So we moved down to Hope Island we were so impressed! Sheye who runs the Montessori school is probably one of the loveliest most understanding and caring people you could ever meet. She ensures all the teachers teach on the traditional authentic principles of Montessori. There is so much care and love and help given to each child my daughter blossomed at this kindy. Not only that they make and provide all the healthy food for your child for the day! I can not recommend this preschool more highly.

“As a parent, often one of our biggest apprehensions is leaving our child in the care of anyone else. At Hope Island Montessori, we were delighted to find that within a matter of days this was no longer of any concern. The staff are welcoming to the children who attend the beautiful centre, and that sense of belonging is extended to the whole family immediately placing our little ones at ease. The centre truly offers a holistic approach in developing your child as an individual with the utmost level of care and attention, given to all. An exceptional environment, with unprecedented values, which we openly recommend highly”.

"I can not thank you enough for the care you have provided for my son and myself. I was very nervous about sending my first born to day care, but your team made it such a wonderful experience and he has absolutely loved it and I have felt completely calm and trusting in your children's home. After inspecting so many centres, Hope Island Montessori was the only one I felt drawn to. You have a special place there and in my heart".
