Our Philosophy

“Respect all the reasonable forms of activity in which the child engages and try to understand them”.

- Maria Montessori

The Montessori Teacher

Montessori teachers are not the centre of attention in the environment.  As the teachers, our role centers on the preparation and organization of learning- materials to meet the needs and interests of the Montessori children. The focus is on the children learning, not the teachers teaching. They are observers whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as the child develops more.  They promote independence, critical thinking, as well as promoting the many different freedoms that Montessori writes about.

Philosophy

The Montessori Philosophy is based on supporting the holistic development of the child as they progress from birth to adulthood.  It takes a broad vision of education as an aid for life.  As a way of teaching, Montessori offers the view that knowledge isn’t passively gained by learning words. Rather, it is gained through experiences in the surrounding environment.  Hence, the Montessori approach develops the imagination for the child to be a lifelong learner.

The Montessori Environment

The Montessori environment is specifically prepared consisting of activities and experiences with an integrated focus to the core curriculum of Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Communication, Language and Literacy, Knowledge and understanding of the world, physical education, arts and creativity as well as mindfulness/yoga and sustainability.  The environment is calm and nurturing and uses a holistic approach.

What makes us different?

Quality Child Care

GMN looks at the whole systems thinking: Education for sustainability at a Global Montessori Nursery.

We are keen advocates in valuing peace, and GMN nurtures and instils kindness, thoughtfulness and respect in other and our planet Earth.

Our ‘Little Global Advocates’ are passionate about their environment, a thoughtfulness they will carry forward with them in life.

We have already incorporated mindfulness within our pre-school curriculum, and we are excited to tell you that we will be looking at sustainability in more detail.
