The Glenleighden School caters for children from preschool through to secondary age and provides comprehensive, intensive multi-disciplinary programs which are highly individualised and address the full scope of the students' developmental and learning needs. There are four distinct levels in the school, Early Childhood, Junior School, Middle School and Senior School.

The child is guided in the exploration of his/her own learning styles and in the development of work patterns most suited to the individual needs.
We currently have the following Montessori programs:
