Testimonials

  • Some memorable sentiments from the Graduation Speeches from the class of 2019: I've loved my time here for so many reasons, like the people, the teachers, the community spirit and also the Montessori method, which gives me so much more freedom than I would have in any other school... This has by far been the best year of my life... I can safely say that nearly every day here has been a good day... I love the freedom in our school and the Montessori method. Even now when I do fractions I picture the red material in my head and it makes everything a lot easier...

  • In the Junior Class you could choose your own work and move around the classroom. You could also choose who to have snack with and to sit with as well as when to have your snack. In the Senior Classes you could correct younger children’s work, as well as, call out spellings on Fridays. You were encouraged to do projects about your own interests, as well as planning of school tours & outings & writing the Christmas plays. Because there were no formal sports at lunch, you could make up or play your own games in the garden. All of these things helped me to become the Independent person I am now & make up my own mind on what I like to do & feel about things.

  • I’m not sure how developed my independence of thought is now as an adult but I do know that I remember how engaged I was when working independently at The Children’s House. I felt like I was in my own world – there was no competing, no aspiring to good grades. It was akin to being engrossed in a hobby that you are deeply interested in. the materials absorbed me, no matter the subject. I can compare it to my years in school from 3rd Class up. It is different. It is fantastic to have experienced the Montessori method. It is a lesson in seeing that there is another way.

ABOUT MONTESSORI

Maria Montessori, a woman ahead of her time, was a person of great depth and insight. She was the first woman in Italy to be granted a medical degree before stepping into the field for which she is so well known – early child education. She was an ambassador for world peace; the UNICEF Charter of Human Rights and Rights of the Child were adopted directly from her. She was thrice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize (in 1949, 1950 and 1951) for her committed efforts on behalf of children, especially in the face of the fascism of World War II.

Her deep commitment to children led her to become a champion in the research and development of their education. Doctor Montessori concluded that children have a natural love of life and learning that needed to be nurtured, not taken for granted. This philosophy, put into practice in her first Montessori school in Rome in 1907, has become her legacy to the millions of children today in the thousands of Montessori schools worldwide.

Montessori education is centred on the child, with the Montessori “Directresses’ guiding rather than teaching. They are facilitators in the process of learning. The Montessori Directress presents the information to the child in a climate of mutual respect. By following and observing the child the Montessori Directress can recognise and respond to each child’s individual needs. Development of self-esteem, tolerance, mutual respect and concern for others are traits that are nurtured in this environment.
