About Crestwood

Crestwood Child Care Centre – a Montessori inspired pre-school – is located in Molendinar almost opposite the Gold Coast Hospital and the Griffith University Campus. The operators of Crestwood Child Care Centre have been serving the children and their families with Montessori education for the last 20 years.

What is Montessori?

The Montessori approach offers a broad vision of education as an ‘aid to life’, supporting the full development of the human being.  As an educational system, Montessori has a more successful track record than any other educational approach.

“I am really happy with the quality of care and teaching given to my daughter. I believe she will be well equipped to move onto school and will carry the values, skills and confidence she has learnt with her always.  Thank you!”
The Montessori method encourages and nurtures my child’s natural desire to learn. Put simply; Montessori is Education through Discovery
If you could give any child a precious gift, it would be the gift of learning.  From a very young age, the Montessori method has encouraged my child to enjoy this gift by offering a wide range of things to do. I praise all the teachers for their patience and understanding.
