Essential Skills for a Successful Life

Welcome to Discover Montessori Children’s House Early Years Community, a sanctuary designed for the transformative years of 3 to 4.5, where each child’s inherent curiosity becomes the pathway to endless exploration and vibrant growth.

Igniting a Passion for Lifelong Learning

At Discover Montessori Children’s House, our 3-4,5 Early Years program is meticulously designed to cultivate holistic development, embracing the Montessori method and the preparatory principles of the International Baccalaureate (IB) for young learners. We aim to foster creativity, independence, and a lifelong love for learning. This program uniquely combines hands-on, experiential learning with specifically designed Montessori materials within a nurturing environment, allowing children to explore and discover at their own pace.

Nurturing Environment and Program

The children absorb all aspects of their environment in a quest to become part of their culture. The space and program allow the children to discover, learn and be independent. The learning environment is specially prepared with Montessori materials that are designed for the presentation and exploration of practical life, refinement of senses, early mathematics, language, culture, and creativity. The beauty and order of the materials help to remind the child to return them to their place neatly and carefully. The children have the freedom to make choices from a variety of sequentially designed materials, which aids in their development of responsibility and self-mastery. We provide a child-centred and enriching environment where the children gain independence and self-discipline and learn appropriate skills.

Emphasis on Social and Emotional Growth

Our curriculum places a strong emphasis on social and emotional development, helping children cultivate empathy, respect, and collaboration skills. These elements are crucial as they align with both Montessori principles and the IB’s focus on creating responsible, global citizens.

Nature and Outdoor Learning

Discover Montessori Children’s House values the significant role of nature in child development. We integrate regular outdoor play and exploration to enhance emotional well-being, creativity, and cognitive abilities, understanding that immersion in nature is not just beneficial but essential for young learners.

Encouraging Independence and Curiosity

The core of our day, the work period, is rooted in Montessori pedagogy with uninterrupted cycles where children receive personalised guidance and engage in self-directed activities. This approach fosters independence and collaborative learning, with children partaking in everything from using Montessori materials to observing peers and managing self-served snacks.

Nurturing Well-being and Special Activities

Tailored to meet individual needs, our program offers dedicated nap times for younger children in a soothing environment. The afternoon specials provide diverse experiences in fine arts, music, and physical activities, designed to cultivate a well-rounded personality and prepare them for the next stages of their educational journey.
