Montessori National Curriculum

ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) have advised that [the Montessori National Curriculum] aligns with the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, meets the particular principles and guidelines in relation to the Shape of the Australian Curriculum V3 Dec 2010, and allows for broadly comparable educational outcomes in English, mathematics, science and history by the end of Year 10. The recognition is almost completely unqualified and further acknowledges our different approach to learning, the different approach to ICT in the early years, that our history program begins with the universe following through human civilisations to the local level, and notes the role of Montessori materials and activities in delivering the curriculum.
