Early Learning Centre
The Early Learning Programs were established to meet the needs of our preschool children who are intending to continue their primary education at Southern Montessori School.
The small group structure of this learning environment assists children and their families to make a successful transition from the preschool, into primary school life.
The small group structure also enables the teaching staff to observe and work with children more closely, while fostering the development of strong social bonds between the children.
As well as Montessori methodology, the Early Learning Centre places a strong emphasis on the development of emerging literacy and numeracy skills.
The teacher and parents work closely together to support the children in their acquisition of the skills they will need as they head towards their formal education.
The Preschool and Early Entry children have a range of session options running from Monday to Friday.
As children approach school age, they are able to remain all day in the Early Learning Centre.
