A child's first experience of school affects a lifetime approach to learning and education. At La Petite Ecole we fully appreciate just how vital it is that we ensure this first experience is positive, enriching and joyful.
Our school has been established to meet the educational needs of pre-school children in a way that respects the essential nature of childhood.
Our priority is to emphasise caring and authentic relationships between the child, the teachers and parents using a curriculum that nurtures healthy all round development.
"Since his first day at La Petite Ecole, our son has blossomed and enjoyed every single day of school. We only see a big smile when we drop him off in the morning and he always talks so fondly about his teachers and friends when he is back at home. La Petite Ecole Montessori's approach is accompanied by a truly supportive, familial and gentle environment. We feel so fortunate that he can have such a happy start to his learning life."
The philosophy is based on an integrated model of education using the tried and tested methods of Montessori, as well as other well-known and proven educational philosophies. The environment is especially prepared to create a home away from home, providing a safe, warm and nurturing space with a family like atmosphere. The teachers are especially chosen to inspire children through the power of role modeling authenticity, resourcefulness and respect.
Our goal is to empower children to value diversity and become culturally literate, to think independently and live harmoniously in community.
When children feel safe and secure, are provided with adequate space and opportunity to move and explore, they are motivated to learn in the way nature intended. When children have good role models worthy of imitation, their education is one for life.
A safe, purpose-designed school, just for pre-schoolers...
