Castlecrag Montessori School is a parent-run, non-denominational co-educational preschool and kindergarten that offers Montessori classes for children aged 3–6 years.



The Montessori classroom is a supportive and nurturing environment carefully prepared with self correcting materials to facilitate independent learning and exploration.



The first step to enrolling your child is to make an appointment for a classroom observation. This is the best way to appreciate the uniqueness of a Montessori Education.

Castlecrag Montessori school is located on Sydney’s Lower North Shore and has students from Castlecrag, Northbridge, Willoughby, Roseville, Chatswood, Crows Nest, Greenwich and Artarmon.

At Castlecrag Montessori School you will find a warm, welcoming and active community.
Here’s what some of our past parents have to say about our school.

“Castlecrag Montessori School (CMS) has provided the bedrock for our childrens education.  Their ability to focus, to get into ‘flow’ and to view the world imaginatively and with care and respect are derived from their time at CMS.  The confidence and joy with which they approach the world and their lives has been underpinned in no small meausre by their time at this special place.  We are very grateful that our children had the opportunity to attend CMS, where they were nurtured into very happy, creative individuals who continue to learn with a quiet confidence and discipline informed by these enchanted early years.” (Robert and Katriona Berkelouw)

The quality of care, kindness and teaching which my daughter received at Castlecrag Montessori school I cannot rate highly enough. The professionalism and knowledge of the teachers combined with the extensive Montessori educational tools provided an engaging, effective and caring teaching environment. My daughter still asks to go back and see her teachers as her 3 years there have left a positive indelible mark on her heart. It is without doubt the best start I could have given my daughter in life cementing both her love of learning and a caring kind outlook.
