The school accommodates children from 2 years to 6 years of age. Various extra mural activities are on offer and include Monkeynastix, CricketHero, Ballet, The Kick Ups, Swimming and Kindermusik. Our Montessori is situated on a large property and boasts 4 spacious classrooms and a beautifully grassed playground. The children enjoy nutritious, wholesome snacks and meals every day.
Dr Maria Montessori was one of the most influential pioneers in early childhood education. Her ideas have become known and recognized throughout the world over a period of more than one hundred years and yet still seem fresh, modern and child-centered when encountered for the first time. It is no surprise that they have also been incorporated into good practice in mainstream education.
