Plenty Valley International Montessori School

Plenty Valley International Montessori School (PVIMS) is located in leafy St Helena, Victoria (20km North East from Melbourne). At PVIMS we implement the National Montessori Curriculum which is on the ACARA register (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority).
Imagine a school which:

  • Offers Playgroup, Early Learning, Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) and Prep to Year 6 in multi-age classrooms that nurture developmentally appropriate learning to meet your child’s needs;
  • Gives your child two hectares of beautiful semi-rural land in which to learn and explore;
  • Is passionate about your child developing their full potential;
  • Provides educational excellence for your child in a specialised Montessori environment;
  • Has highly qualified Montessori trained staff who are committed to knowing your child at a personal level;
  • Uses science and research to inform curriculum; and
  • Respects Dr Maria Montessori’s legacy for peace.

That's the difference at Plenty Valley International Montessori School.
