Sunscreen and insect repellent
We ask that parents supply nappies as we find that parents can have preferences over the brand of nappies that is worn by their child.
We sustain three key value areas throughout our daily routines: safety, as the main step that builds children's security in a nurturing way which in turn leads to intimacy, the second step that enables closeness and bonding between staff and children, and thus directly providing an optimal base for developing independence through academics, the third step which helps our children acquire extensive knowledge in a fun way.
Our values are sustained through Our Philosophy...
Learning through Independent Discovery
We strive to enable children's learning through independent discovery by providing an optimal environment that encourages participation, provides independence, problem solving, skill development and fosters a love of learning.
Positive Relationships with Families
We encourage positive relationships with families that are based on mutual trust, open communication and respect for diversity; all this enables families sharing their knowledge with the child and in turn reciprocate with the understanding that benefits the child.
Respect for the Environment
We show respect for our environment, materials and resources that we use. We believe that we need to minimise our waste, reuse resources and reduce our footprint on our planet. Our planet is our home, let's keep it clean and healthy!
Diversity of Our Community
We feel that the diversity of our community is valuable and contributes to the children's understanding of cultural diversity. Through our Montessori philosophy we strive to build a community spirit among our international staff, parents and children.
Mutual Respect among Staff
We foster an environment of trust, open communication and mutual respect among our lovely staff. We support each other to improve our professional and personal strengths which bring individuality and originality to The Montessori Farm.
