Discover the Montessori pedagogy

Montessori pedagogy considers education as an aid and a preparation for life. We believe that every child is able to reach their full potential if they have the right environment, the right equipment and advice.

Montessori Method

The Montessori Method is a method of educating children, based on the research and developments of Italian educator Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952). She has dedicated to studying child development and spent a greater part of her life writing, lecturing and teaching about these practices.
The Montessori Method believes that a teacher’s role is to aid and support the child’s exploration and creativity, while the child learns from their environment and other children; at their own pace. This method has shown to help foster independence, confidence, a sense of pride in their achievements and positive self-esteem from an early age.

Areas in Montessori
• Practical Life/Everyday Life Activities
Practical life lessons involve children carrying out exercises such as polishing, transferring, pouring and threading. Through these simple tasks children learn to concentrate, self-motivate, be confident and become independent.
• Sensorial
Sensorial lessons take the children through tasks involving textures, smells, weight, sounds, comparisons and sequencing. These tasks help children develop awareness, sensitivity and observation and prepare them for the theories of Mathematics.
• Mathematics
Practical life and sensorial methods introduce the basics of mathematics into the child’s learning. Therefore, here they learn to count, combine, share, compare and really learn to understand mathematical concepts.
• Language and Literacy
These lessons introduce phonetic sounds of the alphabet to lead the child towards writing, reading, developing their vocabulary and self-expression.
• Cultural
Books and role play are used for children to learn new and different cultures. We also educate the child on history, geography, biology, science, cookery and animal care; along with the celebrations of global festivals all of which help the child understand and appreciate all diversities.
Progress check at two

The nursery supplies parents with a short written summary of their child’s development in the three prime areas of learning and development when the child is aged between 24-36 months. This progress check enables early identification of development needs so that additional support can be put in place, if necessary.
