How We Teach

The Montessori Principles we use include, amongst others, Movement, Interest, Choice, Context, Peers and Order.

As our brains to develop, MOVEMENT and cognition are closely linked.  Children learn from being able to move. Education is therefore enhanced through movement.

Our curriculum is designed to help children discover what INTERESTS them most and to give them the freedom to learn about those things in-depth.

CHOICE allows children to discover what their needs, interests and abilities are, and encourages them to engage in their own education, thereby discovering the outcome of an activity.


Maria Montessori Quotes

” Joy, feeling one’s own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul. “

A Word

From Our Principal
