What is Montessori?

Montessori is designed to give a child all the tools she or he needs in life in order to succeed by him or herself. It encourages confidence, independence and curiosity through self-directed games and collaborative play. Montessori children make creative choices in order to complete these games and activities.

They play in groups and individually with games designed for them to discover and explore the world and to develop to their maximum potential.

This makes Montessori activities ideal for children from 0 – 6 years old. Young children learn whilst playing with and manipulating objects in their surroundings. Montessori games make excellent use of this fact. They are designed to be self-correcting so that while a child plays with a game they will unconsciously learn something at the same time.

Montessori teachers, also known as guides, help to stimulate the child’s enthusiasm. They guide them through these games without interfering so that the child can discover the world for him or herself.

During our school closure, our staff and students will be continuing with learning using our virtual platforms. We still celebrate a daily circle time for all our families and we have a wide range of activities that your children can enjoy and help to bring some routine to your day! Our Admissions administration will also continue to work virtually such that applicants can continue with new and pending applications. We thank you for your patience while we respond to your enquiry!
