Montessori (ages 4 – 6 years)

Preparing our children for the future…

Do we know what the world will look like in 20 years time?

This is difficult to say; we see trends in business, phenomena in relationships, environmental changes and so on. The world is changing more rapidly than ever.

With a change in circumstances, an urgent change in educational practice is needed. Should we still prepare our children as is typically done in batches of the same age and by sitting still and listening to what the teacher says? Are those the skills they need to urgently develop for a changing future?

We believe that children need guidance in developing and maintaining qualities that will serve them well now and in the future. Qualities that will allow them to become independent, self-reliant, flexible, responsible, logical, respectful and open-minded people.

… and living in a constructive and supported present.

Every child is different!

A well functioning and well-rounded person has the chance, right from the start, to develop and improve his/her particular strengths and challenges.

Academics, social and emotional development, music, and fine and gross motor activities all form an integrated part of the day. Joy and seriousness are combined. The children love singing together, playing percussion instruments, and dancing or listening to a performance. Gross motor activities are done both inside and outside. Equipment such as balancing beams, beanbags, balls, trampolines and mats are used. By paying attention to all aspects of each child, they can become happy, develop a great self-esteem and enthusiasm for learning!
