Montessori Early Childhood Centre caters for children from 6 weeks to 6 years. We combine the philosophies and teaching Methods of Maria Montessori alongside the Early Years Learning Frame Work and National quality standards.
Our aim is to provide the highest quality of care while giving the children the opportunity to develop necessary skills and independence to prepare them for life. We include many opportunities for children to explore and learn. Each room follows the Montessori curriculum and have access to their own outdoor area which includes sandpits, vegetable gardens and many opportunities for gross motor movement.
What is Montessori?
Named for its founder, Dr. Maria Montessori, the Montessori method is based on two simple truths: That children must be respected, and children spontaneously love learning.
These principles and careful observation form a child-centered method that Montessori called an “education for life.” Its goal is the finest development of the whole human being – emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually – toward the nurturing of peaceful, caring citizens.
The Montessori prepared environment honours the child to work independently at his/her own pace. Carefully designed Montessori materials attract the interest of the children, while at the same time teaching an important, isolated concept for the child’s discovery. The child constructs his own reality and awareness, at first concretely through hands-on manipulation, and discovers the next level. The integrated Montessori curriculum shows the child how every aspect of learning is connected and intertwined. Our educators understand and guide the child without interfering with their natural ability to teach themselves and become an independent and contributing member in the “cosmic plan”.
