To aid life … that is the basic task of the educator.

—  Maria Montessori 


At MLC Prep we believe that children have an innate ability to learn and that when supported by an appropriate educator, they are guided to reach their full potential.

The teacher is a guide or facilitator whose task it is to empower the child in his or her process of self-development. While teaching subject knowledge and skills is necessary, they also emphasise supporting the child to become a self-learner, focusing on skills such as how to think, how to inquire, and how to research and find answers.

An MLC teacher creates an open and warm culture in the classroom. She or he holds deep love and respect for each child.

At MLC Prep we have high quality teachers and assistants who share our vision and passion for education. Teachers typically have a normal teacher qualification as well as an additional Montessori specific training. Through our College we support teacher development ensuring high standards are maintained.
