Morning Star Montessori
Founded in 2000. Celebrating 23 years!
Montessori School in Pretoria from Toddlers to Middle School
At Morning Star Montessori, we strive to give your child a well-balanced education at all levels of development, for each child to gain the ability to solve challenges, to use freedom wisely, to respect himself/herself and others, and to take joy in learning and living.
We see each child as an individual and take our responsibility to help your child in building the foundations for a lifetime of creative learning very seriously.
The activities and environment provided by Morning Star Montessori stimulate and help develop a love of learning, an abiding curiosity in one's surroundings and a desire to discover and do things for oneself.

I have the pleasure of providing the following testimonial for Morning Star.
Morning Star Montessori School has been a blessing to what was a very desperate prayer. It is a one-in-a-million establishment that offers far more than does any conventional school. The Montessori pedagogy alone is phenomenal, and Morning Star amplifies its brilliance with valuable philosophical teachings and wisdom. What I value most about this beautiful place of learning is the ethos of kindness and respect that is cultivated in the children and the community. The community is like a cherished extended family.
The children learn to be kind, considerate, respectful, helpful, responsible, and independent – and adept in ways that us parents can only marvel at. The children are thoroughly prepared for Life. Best of all, this is not achieved through dictated learning and mountains of homework. A child’s natural thirst for knowledge is kept alive and healthy, and children will go to school even on a Saturday, given the opportunity! Morning Star children are immensely blessed, and it will not be surprising if these young stars catalyze significant positive change in the world as they venture into the future.
