To aid the child’s development into a complete adult human being, comfortable with themselves, with their society and with humanity.
To foster the fullest possible development of the whole child, ultimately preparing them for life’s many rich experiences.
To develop in their own natural rhythm children who are physically and mentally independent, self-confident and self-controlled, able to manage the requirements of daily life with grace, ease and effectiveness.
The Whole Child Approach
It is a child-centred educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood.
It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child.
The primary goal of a Montessori programme is to help the child reach their full potential in all areas of life. Activities promote the development of social skills, emotional growth and physical coordination, as well as cognitive preparation for future intellectual academic endeavours. The holistic curriculum, under the direction of a trained teacher, allows the child to experience the joy of learning, the time to enjoy the process and ensures the development of self-esteem. It provides the experiences from which children create their knowledge.
