Your new company
The Farmhouse Montessori School caters for students from early childhood through to primary across two lovely campuses in and near Manly on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The school currently caters for 150 students across both campuses. As an authentic Montessori school, Farmhouse Montessori School follows a philosophy that allows for the development of each individual child in an environment that promotes an atmosphere of respect and understanding. The small school size allows for a tight knit community that are highly engaged, committed and passionate about the school and Montessori education.
