Cycle 2: Kristy & Tricia

This program is conducted by Patricia (Tricia) Thompson and Kristy Dunstan. Parents are usually able to quickly catch up with teachers at drop off or pick up time. However, if you require a more formal appointment, please arrange a mutually convenient time.  Teachers can be contacted by phoning the school or alternatively you may wish to email them.

Their email address is patricia@southernmontessori.sa.edu.au or kristy@southernmontessori.sa.edu.au. Our teachers will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible during classroom breaks. Thank you.

Kristy and Tricia teach a Cycle 2 class. Tim is their Classroom Assistant. His primary role is to provide extra support to allow Kristy and Tricia to work with children individually and in small groups to meet their needs.

While children in our Cycle 2 classes will often participate in different learning experiences, the Cycle 2 teachers work closely together to ensure children experience a consistent approach to their Montessori education and shared expectations in terms of quality of work and behaviour. Our Cycle 2 classes are multi-age, allowing each child the opportunity to learn from others and the flexibility to develop, both socially and intellectually, at their own pace. Children usually stay with the same teacher for three years, developing strong teacher-student relationships and a deep understanding by the teacher of individual student needs and abilities.

Warm regards, Kristy, Tricia and Tim
