Welcome to Hillkruin Montessori School

HillKruin Montessori was founded as a response to the ever growing demand to equip our children with both life and academic skills that allow them to become competent individuals and potential leaders in a complex socio-economic environment. Our mission is to provide a quality Montessori education in an Environment which fosters a child’s love of learning and respect for self, others, community and the world. Our commitment seeks to nurture the child academically, socially, emotionally and physically, to work together in the important educational triangle of Parent, Teacher and Child, and to build communities that will be prepared to face up to all challenges and stand firm on sound human values. The school is accredited by The Independent Schools Association of South Africa (ISASA) and a Full Member of the South African Montessori Association (SAMA).

To mould each child as an individual, a unique person with his or her own special gifts and talents. Taking their strengths and building it to new heights and helping them overcome their weaknesses to ensure well-rounded and confident individuals.

• To create a great passion for excellence in the things that they attempt.

• To embed an internalized set of core values that one lives by when one is not being observed.

• To develop a sense of being part of a family unit.

• To instil a commitment of service back to the community and to people known and those not yet met.


HillKruin Montessori takes its community very seriously and its philosophy is to instil a strong sense of “being a part off” and adopting an Ubuntu culture. “We are because you are”. Offering a quality Montessori education to the greater Midrand area our learners also come from Blue Hills, Thatchfield, Centurion, Carlswald, Kyalami, Sunninghill, and other suburbs. Located in the beautiful agricultural surrounds of Blue Hills, HillKruin is easily accessible from the R55 which provides an easy connect to the North and South of Johannesburg. HillKruin interacts with the community by participating in inter-school track, and field events, soccer, cricket and netball tournaments. We engage our community socially by supporting fundraising efforts to feed children in need, uplift schools that we partner with, by providing much needed equipment and other necessary items, which enable education within these under-resourced schools. Our winter drives are always taken seriously as Parents, Learners and Educators are acutely aware of the less fortunate circumstances of others close to us. Our popular Chess clubs drives a great sense of engagement with other neighbouring school environments.
