Children are encouraged to construct their own understanding of concepts through their exploration and interaction with the Montessori learning materials.
The Centre aims to foster a love of learning that will stay with the children throughout their lives.
To this end, the program is organised to enable children to access a wide variety of learning experiences.
The Montessori materials are carefully designed and researched to match the developmental needs and characteristics of children.
Self-discipline is fostered by engaging children in decision making, by encouraging task completion, and by creating a classroom climate where the right to learn is respected at all times.
The program aims to nurture:
- the growth of independence
- a strong interest in learning alongside good work habits
- a willingness to accept responsibility for one's actions.
The Preschool is also a preparatory step into the Early Entry and Primary programs.
A variety of program options are available at the Preschool.
