Book a tour with us today and experience a childcare environment like no other.
When you enter the calm, peaceful environment of a Montessori classroom,
it may seem quite different from what you’ve come to expect from traditional
educational environments. Here are a few differences you may notice.
Teacher introduces activities to children and then lets them pursue their own interests, while observing their progress.
Teachers work one-on-one with children in order to ensure that they fully grasp tasks and activities.
Once children have seen the teacher demonstrate an activity at least once, they are encouraged to pursue that activity on their own, to work on figuring it out for themselves.
The Toddler and Preschool classrooms allows for 2 age groupings (1.5 – 3yr and 3 – 6yrs), so children of various skill levels can work alongside each other, and learning takes place at all different experience levels which is not limited by age.
In the mixed-age environment, the opportunity exists for older children who have “mastered” activities to share their knowledge with younger children; learning is enhanced by this positive exchange of experiences.
Uninterrupted work times allow for a level of immersion that is difficult to achieve when lessons are timed and scheduled.
Through repetition of activities, children learn to identify and rectify their mistakes, encouraging awareness of their abilities.
The more a child works on a particular task or activity, the stronger they become, and the more confident they are in their abilities.
The best way to experience our unique atmosphere is to come and visit us. Just as we tailor our teaching to suit each child, we do the same for parents and children visiting us.
You can book a personal tour with us on any day of the week, giving you a chance to experience a normal school day. We’ll show you around all of our specialist onsite facilities, introduce you to some of the teachers and answer any questions you may have about our curriculum, teaching or school life in general.
A visit will usually take around an hour and is the best way to truly get a sense of how we foster an inclusive, exciting and nurturing learning environment for all the children we teach.
