About Riverlands Montessori School
Imagine a place where children can explore their world, discover new knowledge and realise their potential, where they really want to come to school each day. Riverlands Montessori School is located in the Swan Valley, in a rural setting with quiet surroundings, native gardens and a delightful atmosphere away from the bustle of the city. Our school community is positive and vibrant with experienced teaching staff and programs that promote involvement in the wider community.
Children are encouraged to develop at their own pace in a creative environment incorporating Montessori Philosophy. Montessori is a brain-based developmental education method that emphasises hands-on learning, self-expression and collaborative work and play in a beautifully crafted environment of respect, peace and happiness. It empowers children to be confident, creative thinkers who are self-directed. Our staff are committed to providing a healthy and safe environment for all.

Riverlands Montessori School is Celebrating 25 years in 2016
Riverlands is a beautiful, close‐knit school with a talented staff base. My children have flourished at the school, under the direction of committed teachers who ensure each child has a genuine understanding of a new task or challenge, rather than rushing the children through the curriculum in bulk. The Montessori system allows my children to develop their talents and address their weaknesses with dignity and enthusiasm. The school has contributed to my children becoming compassionate people and lifelong learners.Riverlands Parent
Riverlands Montessori is unique. Not only is there an incredible focus on developing each individual student to reach their full potential, but the memories I have of Riverlands speak to the multitude of opportunities the school offered – opportunities which I believe no other primary school could have given me. The teachers and staff took every opportunity to broaden our skills and mindset, both during class and in various school projects and activities. From developing and recording songs on social issues, to history projects on our local community, to participating in the creative thinking initiative Tournament of Minds, to interviewing and recording on the lives of Indigenous Elders, Riverlands gave me such a diverse insight into the world. This school does more than just educate on what is necessary. It expands the boundaries of education to include creativity and social awareness, and helps equip every child with the ability to develop their own unique personality and allow their skills to strengthen and diversify.Grace
