Offering quality Montessori education from 12-months to 18-years

Elonera Montessori School (EMS) offers a joyful life-long approach to learning that prepares children to be self-confident, responsible and successful in our global community. Established in 1973, EMS is a not-for-profit, non-denominational, internationally-minded and inclusive organisation that offers quality Montessori education in the Illawarra for children aged 12 months to 18 years. The High School offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

EMS currently has an enrolment of approximately 220 students and maintains a waiting list. The School has a highly professional and caring teaching staff with a combination of early-career and experienced teachers committed to excellence in Montessori teaching and learning. The students are provided with a caring environment where young minds can grow organically, in an unhurried atmosphere of inquiry and discovery. A strong and vibrant school, we will continue to strive for excellence in Montessori practices and support our staff to be able to assist our children to become the best they can be.

EMS has a strategic plan and is looking for a highly visible and engaging leader to collaboratively and inclusively drive the School’s vision and direction, bed-down back-of-house processes and lead the School on the next exciting phase of development.

The School is supported by a committed parent community which is seeking opportunities to engage with and support the School after the interruptions to planned events over the past 18-moths due to public health measures.

EMS is located in Wollongong. This is part of the beautiful Illawarra and South Coast region of New South Wales, Australia. We are located between the escarpment, which provides easy access to hiking, mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits, and dozens of pristine beaches along our coastline. Surfing, kayaking, sailing and swimming are popular all-year round given our temperate climate. Lower cost of living when compared to Sydney, affordable housing, proximity to the ocean, bush and essential services, plus a dedicated Montessori community, makes Elonera a great option for those candidates looking for a rewarding career and lifestyle.
