Welcome to a world of Encouraging Creativity and Inspiring Curiosity!!!!
We believe Carnegie Montessori is the best way for your children to begin their education. In our school your children will develop at their own pace with no pressure from teachers to keep up with others. This reinforces the children's confidence, self-esteem and love for learning. Our unique methods ensure that your children develops a love for learning as a result of our pressure free learning environment.
Your children are given the opportunity to holistically grow and develop within a warm, caring environment with teachers who recognise, respect and build on their individual needs and interests.
Our ethos is an “active learning” approach. Active learning means that children have direct hands on and concrete experiences with people, objects, events and ideas. We believe that children should be actively involved in their own learning.
Children are encouraged to choose what materials they would like to use and the teachers role is to follow and guide. Through these experiences, children develop practical skills, knowledge and understanding, attitudes and values that will help them to grow as confident and competent learners.
Our curriculum supports and extends children’s emotional, intellectual, social and physical skills and abilities. It is designed to challenge and stimulate every child in our care, regardless of age and ability.
A child’s learning is unique, developing and learning at different rates. Learning based on the child’s interests, strengths and life experiences is more interesting and relevant for him/her.
We will observe your childs development to the finest detail, meaning at all times we are aware of what stage their progression is at. Our class age range is 2 yrs 6 mths to school age and our classroom has 4 distinct areas. These are practical life, sensorial, language, and mathematics. Our teachers are all highly qualified professionals. Call us now to see how we can ad
