With a focus on creating a safe, loving and extremely respectful environment, our Montessori schools Adelaide follow the Montessori teaching method. This method was founded by the first female doctor in Italy, Dr Maria Montessori. She found that children require a very specific environment to learn, absorb and develop to their full potential. We offer this teaching across all of our childcare centres for our nursery, waddlers, pre-kindy and kindergarten children. Our teachers in our Montessori schools Adelaide undergo specific training to adhere to the curriculum objectives and assess the needs of each child. Our Montessori teaching environments consist of a calm yet structured environment, real-life lessons with a focus on behaviour. To be sure that we are meeting each aspect of the Montessori method, our curriculum includes the following.
Our process for children joining on our Montessori schools Adelaide is made simple and clear.

Our activities practised in our Montessori schools Adelaide focus on practical skills that they can utilise for life. Not only teaching each child how to complete these activities but also implanting the meaning and importance behind each one.
Cooking: Understanding food preparation, cooking and nutritional value are all essential life skills. Children are given the opportunity the assist with preparation, mixing and pouring in a supervised and safe environment.
Washing: The Montessori method shows that children are eager to work. Through washing, children develop skills such as concentration, independence and caring for their environment.
Agriculture: Agriculture helps with learning sustainability and assisting sensory development. Our veggie patches help with this, allowing children to get involved hands-on!
Music: One of the most exciting parts of our Montessori schools Adelaide activities is music time. This session helps with stimulating sensory and improving children’s auditory skills.
