About Us

Our journey started in the area of physical development. Montessori Gym was born to offer a more authentic approach to movement and exercise in Montessori. 

Nourished by the love and support from the community, and inspired by its changing needs, our vision has expanded to capture the more holistic idea of wellness. It has also evolved to focus more directly on our core purpose: education

Montessori Wellness is our butterfly. The next chapter in our Montessori adventure.  


Our mission is to promote a deeper understanding of the connections between Montessori pedagogy and wellness practices, so as to support the physical, emotional and mental wellbeing of children and adults alike.

The vision is building an online learning platform on all things self-care and wellness, the Montessori way.
