  • Welcome to MEEC!

    A MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
  • I have been involved in Montessori education since 1990 when I completed a Montessori Diploma. I could think of no other more worthwhile, inspiring job than being involved in Montessori and in the education of children. I first began teaching at MEEC in 1998, began the Montessori stream at Mitcham Primary School in 2004 and became the principal at Donvale in 2008. I am fully committed to Montessori and continue to guarantee that MEEC follows and stays true to the Montessori philosophy.

    It is such a pleasure to come to school observing all the children arriving with joy on their face and then see them in their rooms actively participating in purposeful activities that they have chosen themselves.

  • I also feel privileged to work with such wonderful staff many of whom have been at MEEC for more than 10 years. I admire their work ethic, the commitment they have to Montessori and to meeting the needs of their students to ensure that their first years of education give them a lifelong love of learning.

    Our centre strives for excellence in all areas and we trust and support our parents who have made the important decision to send their child/children to us. It is my promise to them that their child/children will be educated in a peaceful, caring, non-competitive environment free to follow their own desires and at the same time respecting their peers, their teachers and the environment.

    • Montessori education is an amazing way to learn. Our two sons have been so privileged to complete Early Learners and Cycle One at MEEC. The Centre has provided them with a wonderful nurturing start to their learning journey. The things that they have learnt have astounded us and provided them with a wonderful grounding for life and future education.

    • Donvale Montessori has been the most rewarding place to send all three of our children to begin their early years of education and they have all continued to love learning as they move on through the Primary and Secondary years. It is wonderful to watch them grow and develop as independent learners and see their enthusiasm to attend school.

    • Both my daughters have attended Donvale Montessori Early Education Centre. As a Montessori educator myself, I have always felt confident that they received a genuine Montessori experience wholeheartedly based on Montessori principles and values. More importantly, both my girls loved their “school” and looked forward to attending every day; it has been lovely to see them blossom under the nurturing guidance of their teachers.

    • MEEC has provided both our children with a safe haven where they are growing into beautiful beings, at their own pace and free from competition. The teachers at MEEC are amazing and provide support beyond the walls of the classroom, teaching us how to help our children to help themselves. It is wonderful to be part of this community who foster the same beliefs as us. We are forever thankful for this and cannot recommend the Centre highly enough.
