The Montessori environment is ideal for children who are not yet peaceful since the emphasis is on the individual with skills and concepts being presented through individual lessons within a social environment. However, the priority is always to get the balance right in each class so every child has the best possible opportunity to make the most of their abilities. Decisions will always be made on a case by case basis to ensure that balance is maintained.

The multiage groupings present a wide array of skills and behaviours which allows for each child to be accepted and respected. The guides are familiar with working and liaising with external specialists either during or after school hours. Supplementary numeracy and literacy programs are integrated into the school day for individual students who need extra assistance and the class guides liaise with parents and specialists should any learning difficulties be suspected.
