Following the child’s lead
Every child presents us with an opportunity to observe, explore another human being and come to know them; freely, detached from any conviction or judgement.
We follow the child’s lead.
By means of observation, we are able to draw up a dynamic, personal developmental map for each child, which is constantly adjusted and shaped by the child’s shifting interests and learning pace, by offering them the freedom to choose their activities based on their interests and the time required for further exploration, repetition, and refinement.
We strongly believe that a nurturing learning atmosphere that fosters freedom of choice, self-expression and respect for the community, where the child becomes a self-directed learner and honors others’ space and rights, will allow for a well-rounded personality to slowly reveal itself.
Respect for each child’s individuality is at the heart of our mindset.
Our primary goal is to get to know each child’s unique features and qualities so as to provide the appropriate space and stimuli for these to flourish.
Learning is, for us, a personal experience.
The unparalleled role of our Guides1
Children who are, as Montessori believed, the constructors of Men, demand our unrelenting devotion, support and best efforts to foster their path of learning in life.
Our team of highly-trained individuals, is focused daily on their inner-growth and the development of their awareness, so as to successfully fulfil their role as Montessori Guides within a dynamic learning environment that fosters independence, freedom of choice, respect to others, boundaries and community values.
They have a profound understanding of children’s developmental needs and of the inner-strength and humility required to successfully cater to those needs.
In our learning environments, we are mindful that all adults surrounding the young child, serve as models of positive behavior, respect for others and responsibility. We inherently provide children with guidance via personal encouragement and foster positive social interactions.
We pride ourselves on our team being made up of individuals with life-values and beliefs that one would like to instill in their children, for children become like the things they love, by instinctively absorbing their environment.
 Guide: The trained adult in a Montessori environment is called a “guide,” as opposed to a “teacher,” because his/her role is not to impart knowledge but to prepare the environment, introduce the activities in the environment based on each child’s interest and to endorse the freedom, the limits and values that define a Montessori learning environment
Valuing our community
The child’s family is our partner.
We strongly believe that working together with families, will ultimately enhance a young child’s learning and development.
As parents and educators, we are joined by our shared, sincere love for the child.
Each child is, first and foremost, a member of a family. When we welcome a child in our community we are also welcoming their family, who has entrusted us with the care of their child.
When we work with a child we are also working with their family and often with the wider community, too.
Our doors are always open to the individuals supporting the child, when he or she is not under our care.
