Philosophy

Cornerstone Montessori School offers a UNIQUE BLEND of approaches to education

  • rooted in MONTESSORI philosophy
  • committed to TRADITIONAL VALUES
  • incorporating PROGRESSIVE education practices

The pursuit of ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE is a fundamental aim of Cornerstone School.

The Montessori philosophy incorporates an emphasis on independent thinking, self-inspiration and personal development. Children are encouraged to move beyond the standard measures of academic success by channelling their powers of curiosity, imagination, creativity and self-discovery. Teachers and staff work to instil a strongly held set of values within each student, including such virtues as honesty, integrity, responsibility, empathy and kindness.

It is our belief at Cornerstone that the secret to education is to inspire a passion for excellence within the child that transcends school-life.
