School Notes

  • Our aim is to provide a happy and nurturing environment where we attend to the children's needs, facilitate their interests, and encourage their developing abilities.
  • In our classrooms we use educational materials that assist children to reach their full potential of self-confidence and independence.
  • Each well prepared environment reflects the core montessori belief that children learn best through their own efforts.
  • The role of the teacher is to link the children to this environment by group and individual lessons, by providing new materials as children indicate their need and readiness, and by acting as a supportive guide as each child explores their creativity and unique skills and talents.
