“We are beyond happy to have out two boys, Sebastian, and Oliver at Southbank Montessori. Both centres are looked after by the friendliest, loveliest Educators. It is a place the boys feel safe and very happy in. A place where myself and my husband are truly confident that our boys are in safe and loving hands. The boys receive so much care and attention and grow in confidence and thrive every day. We speak so highly about the Centre and would highly recommend Southbank Montessori to all parents.”

Natalie Mckaigue

“Have loved our sons experience at Southbank, he has learnt so much and had so much fun. The teachers genuinely care about him and he is very happy being dropped off in the morning. Our daughter (3months old) is already on the waitlist to join the Southbank family once she is old enough!”

“Wonderful place for kids to learn and socialise with other kids. Great to see the same educators’ faces there over time, which is always a reassuring thing… for the parents and presumably for the kids also.”

“Our son started in SBM in late January 2023, in a full time basis. He was 22.5 mo and it was his first time in daycare ever.

We must say that we are more than happy and greatfull with all the staff in SBM, they have not only the skills but, the heart on all the children’s care. When our son started, he was a bit shy and within a month he became an extrovert and very social boy… probably it’s his personality but definitely the interaction with the other kids at the center and educators guidence, helped.

One of the things that we have noticed the most it’s how well he plays with other kids, he is not selfish with his belongs and most of the time he is calm and well mannered, without necessity of been told. We believe that the Montessori philosophy has a great impact in children’s development, we are witness of it and we are very pleased by knowing that our son is in good hands.

Another aspect that we will like to point out is the care that the staff put in us, the parents, by knowing how difficult it was to leave our son the first couple of weeks, their recomforting words really helped our peace of mind.”

“If you’re looking for a childcare center that you can trust and that your child will love, then Southbank Montessori is definitely the place for you. From the moment you walk in the door, you will be greeted with a warm and friendly atmosphere that will make you and your child feel right at home.

The staff at Southbank Montessori are extremely caring and attentive, and they make sure every child feels happy, safe, and loved. They provide a rich and stimulating environment full of books and activities that are just the right level for every age group. The facility itself is clean with plenty of indoor and outdoor play areas for the children to explore. There are also dedicated nap and snack areas that are clean and comfy to ensure that the children are well-rested and well-fed throughout the day.

Overall, Southbank Montessori has two wonderful centers that we have personally sent both of our children to. I would highly recommend it to parents who are looking for a professional and caring environment that is able to guide and support children from their early beginnings.”
