Play & learn

Maria Montessori believed that children learn by choosing, trying and doing for themselves. Within our prepared environment, we encourage children to engage with the routines of living. Using her specifically designed apparatus, many of which are didactic, in a prepared environment, guided by Montessori teachers who constantly observe the children and what they are interested in, leads to a confidence-building approach to learning.
