Montessori approach

All our nursery and pre-primary classes follow the principles of the Montessori teaching method. The attributes of the Montessori principles are:

  • Student choice of activity from within a prescribed range of options
  • Uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • A constructivist or "discovery" model, where students learn concepts from working with materials, rather than by direct instruction
  • Specialized educational materials developed by Montessori and her collaborators
  • Freedom of movement within the classroom
  • A trained Montessori teacher

In summary the Montessori teaching method aims to develop the whole child fully, ultimately preparing them for life’s rich experiences.
