The Montessori philosophy encourages vertical grouping, i.e. the integration of children of different ages as a means of stimulating learning through children being able to observe their peers. This approach to learning however involves our teachers carefully directing activities so there is a healthy balance between children discovering for themselves and teachers assisting children when required. Our teachers are assigned to oversee specific child age groups, within this vertical grouping environment.
Our School welcomes close contact with parents and a partnered approach is facilitated via frequent educational outings and events in which parents are encouraged to participate.
The success of this home and school partnering is further enhanced via educational initiatives offered by Montessori Life where the Montessori philosophy and educational teaching method are covered to assist parents to seamlessly reinforce what their little ones learn and develop at school (such as concentration, motivation, self- discipline, initiative and a love of learning)and positively support their children’s developmental needs at home. See our “Partnering with Parents” menu page.
