About Us

Well located in the vibrant suburbs of Balmain and Lilyfield in Sydney, Inner Sydney Montessori School has an enviable, small school reputation whilst being one of the largest Montessori schools in Australia. ISMS is a friendly and dynamic Pre and Primary School with students at the heart of everything we do. Staff create nurturing classrooms where each child develops a healthy self-concept, positive values, strong skills, a deep academic understanding and a curiosity and appreciation of nature and the world around them.

Recognised as one of Australia’s leading Montessori registered schools, our child focused Pre and Primary School enrols around 300 students between the ages of 3-12. In addition, around 100 students are enrolled per term in the Infant Community Program for 0-3 year olds.

We facilitate a child-centered pedagogical model tailored to individualised and independent learning with respect to the social, emotional and intellectual development of the child.
