"No obstacles had been set between their souls and their surroundings; they had expanded fully and naturally, like lotus flowers opening their white petals to the full of the rays of the sun, sending forth a delicate fragrance." (The Montessori Movement, page 18.)

"The most important period
of life is not the age of university studies,
but the first one, the period from birth to the
age of six. For that is the time when man's intelligence
itself, his greatest implement is being formed.
But not only his intelligence; the full totality
of his psychic powers... At no other age has the
child greater need of an intelligent help, and
any obstacle that impedes his creative work will
lessen the chance he has of achieving perfection".
Dr Maria Montessori
"Our aim is to provide the ideal environment for the life education of the child in preparation for his/her start at primary school - education through the senses helping 'me do it myself'. The children are free to move and make choices within their indoor-outdoor environment."

- In keeping with the true tradition of Montessori
Education we believe that no person is educated
by another and that he or she must do it themselves
or it will never be done.
- Learning is a continuous process motivated
by a natural curiosity and love for knowledge.
- An intense fascination for learning even
the simplest skills is prevalent during the
early sensitive periods in a child's life.
A child must be allowed the freedom to select
individual activities which correspond to
his/her own periods of interest so that an
early enthusiasm for learning is fostered.
- We aim to create an environment which encourages
self confidence, self discipline, concentration
and independence and prepares the child to
become a responsible member of society.
- The children who are of mixed ages, races
and abilities are encouraged to learn from
each other and respect the rights of others.
- We must strive to create an atmosphere of
peace, generosity, order and co-operation
in which all children can thrive.
- We aim to perfect the art of creating a
climate of co-operation, a subtle and flexible
balance which avoids the extremes of no control
and over control, steering rather towards
- The environment encourages every child to
participate. The process of doing is of value,
not just the achievement of task completion.
- Errors are to be treated kindly, not criticised.
- Children are given the freedom within limits.
Staff are firm, consistent and positive in
the promotion of the understanding and acceptance
