About Maridahdi

The protagonist for Maridahdi came with the introduction of Prep into Queensland. Parents were concerned about the more formalised, structured approach to the early years.

Maridahdi is a small independent school with enrolments offered from Kindergarten through to Year 6.

Learning environments

Maridahdi has multi-age spaces supported by teaching teams.  To support the ethos, Maridahdi offers a high adult to child ratio.


Community approach

Maridahdi's community approach to education is best supported with this African proverb. 

......."It takes a village to raise a child"

Maridahdi is focused on family!

Maridahdi invites families to be active in the space!


The Australian Curriculum informs the teaching and learning at Maridahdi.

Maridahdi's Reporting and Assessment Policy is a collaborative process between the child, the parents and the teachers.

Children work across curriculum areas in a variety of individual, small group and whole class situations throughout the day.
