We are back with our second after such a positive experience with our first. We were impressed with the experience the teachers drew on to devise learning strategies for a rather head-strong child! We were very impressed with the Montessori learning equipment. We felt it really helps conceptualise abstract concepts for children. We found out that the equipment is designed to be self-correcting so it may seem simple but there is a thought process that has gone into the design. You can’t buy toys like that on your own. We appreciate the small enrolment as you get a warm family experience and like how the teachers each make an effort to get to know you.

What a great way for kids to start preparing for school and life. The team at BestStart Montessori in Johnsonville have given both my kids a fantastic leg up in their development. So many skills learned and such great support too, that's the Montessori way. You couldn't hope for a better pre-school ????

I am very happy with Beststart Montessori Johnsonville. My three children went and are going there and the teachers and Manager have also being nice, extramilles and friendly.
My daughter, who is still attending the center has diabetes type 1 and my experience as parent has been great, teachers are always onto it, write down a daily report that i have to show to the diabtes nurse, they treat her blood sugar levels outstandingly, which is a real peace of mind. She has learned a lot and my oldest son is going to school and went to the same center where he learned so much that he has excelled at first year of school. Thanks Montessori Johnsonville
