Montessori is an education for life – a learning process where children are encouraged to develop at their own pace in a safe and caring environment. Between the ages of birth and six years, children have what Maria Montessori termed “an absorbent mind” …the ability to absorb life and the world around them.
It is therefore a critical time for building solid foundations for living and learning into the future. We work to develop culturally literate children and to nurture their natural curiosity, creativity and intelligence. We are committed to creating a prepared environment designed to foster individual thinking and to encourage independence, thereby enabling all children to actively participate in their own learning process.
Our environment promotes individual growth in the foundation areas of persistence, organisation, confidence and social interaction, while engendering the values of respect and patience. We demonstrate the value we place on genuine community spirit by building rapport and strong relationships among the staff, parents and children
