The prepared environment.
Our classrooms are made up of children of mixed age groups based on three-year cycles.
The children learn to take responsibility for themselves and each other, to get along with children of different ages and abilities, to respect each other’s work and work space and to treat each other with courtesy. They also take an active role in maintaining their classroom by putting materials away for the next child to use.
Montessori education is guided by clear simple values that empower our children to become strong individuals who embrace diversity and who interact with each other and the environment with respect and responsibility.
Our community needs children who garden, who dream, whose lives and learning are connected to our human reality.
What the hand does the mind remembers.
Our classrooms embody Maria Montessori’s philosophy and New Zealand's Te Whāriki curriculum creating an environment designed to encourage maximum independent learning and exploration by each child.
