“Within the child lies the fate of the future”Maria Montessori

The new revolution in raising children is empowering parents, teachers and caregivers around the world to raise confident, compassionate and capable children.

Hi! I’m Sylvia,
Welcome To Our Village!

More than a decade ago, I fell in love with a quote I read by Dr. Maria Montessori, stating:

“The education of a small child therefore does not prepare him for school, but for life”

Fast forward a few years, I am now Director and owner of a Montessori school in Sydney, Australia and I sit on the board of directors for Montessori Schools and Centres Australia (MSCA). I am also a passionate speaker and trainer, working with children and adults to lay the foundations for our future generations. ​

My roots in Montessori education combined with vital communication skills and practical tools has helped many families and educators to guide children to reach their full potential.
