Stepping Stones Montessori Long Day Care is the first two stages (6mths to 3 years and 3 years to 5 years) of the education provided by Northside Montessori School up to 12 years of age. The educational continuum is founded on the Montessori philosophy and Montessori principles of education.
We operate from 7.30am to 6.00pm on 5 days a week for 48 weeks of the year to cater for the needs of parents who require care for their child due to their work or study commitments.
Northside Montessori School operates a vibrant Montessori Toddler Program 6 mornings a week (including Saturday) in term time for children aged between 18 months and 3 years.
