Welcome to Rockingham

Encouraging independence, respect and self-discipline
Words from our community
“We love being a part of the RMS community where our family has been welcomed with open arms. Our daughter is learning in a way which promotes her independence and allows her true potential and personality to shine through. She is treated as an individual and taught to embrace her own unique thoughts and ideas. The kindness and nurturing she receives from RMS staff has had a direct effect on her capacity for compassion and empathy for others.”
Marie and Mike Martin
“Parenting is tough in today’s world but when you add some passionate teachers and a Montessori philosophy into the mix great things happen. Happy children grow. Our three children have only ever attended RMS and with their teacher student relationships allowed to strengthen over a three- year period my girls have flourished.”
“Each classroom is so carefully prepared and so beautifully presented it makes for a wonderful learning environment for the children. I regularly find myself wishing I was the one going to school here! The teachers are second to none, with a passion for Montessori and their students. My boys have attended since they were three and my eldest is now ten and still just as happy as when he first started. When I ask him what he loves most about school it’s hard for him to choose but he says, “Freedom”. Freedom within limits is a large part of what Montessori is all about and delivers a curriculum that that is engaging as well as developing self-management skills that will last a lifetime.”
“We deeply appreciate the individualised freestyle learning our children experience, and enjoy. Rockingham Montessori offers a caring and respectful approach to education, focusing on the individual needs and talents of the students. A real philosophy of nurturing children.”
Kirran & Shaun Ahearn
“Graham and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff, for the wonderfully nurturing and enriched learning opportunities RMS has provided our boys. Both Thomas and Caleb have loved attending RMS and Graham and I have been thrilled with the love for learning that has been instilled in them.”
