Soil and new growth in the palm of hands

Our annual Montessori conference is a 'home-grown' initiative bringing the local Montessori community together. It provides connection and professional development for Montessori educators and leaders with 'on-the-ground' presenters sharing their practice and insights.

2023 THEME

From Little Things, Big Things Grow

Our Grassroots Conference theme in 2023 comes from the iconic song written by Paul Kelly & Kev Carmody which pays tribute to the Gurindji people. The song is symbolic of the broader movement for Indigenous equality and land rights in Australia. We take inspiration from this iconic song as it resonates with Maria Montessori's mission for education to propel us forward towards justice, equality and peace. The 'little things' we do in our schools and centres can create big change.
