Built on the Montessori method of education and philosophy – based on scientific research and life works of renowned doctor and researcher, Maria Montessori. Essentially, the philosophy empowers children to become independent thinkers, confident in their abilities and resilient in their endeavours.
Montessori philosophy focussing on the holistic development of the child. We provide the best long daycare in Darra, with tailored resources and experiences that inspire children to develop a love for learning and confidence in their abilities. The philosophy is perfect for toddler’s education.
Guided by the Montessori model, we adhere to the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This framework places a strong emphasis on play-based learning for your children. In combination with Montessori practises provides a powerful model for catalysing your child’s growth.
Our state-of-art facility is equipped with the highest quality Montessori-based learning aids and experienced educators who will engage your child in meaningful learning experiences. We also cater for all your child’s needs including quality nappies, bedding, and nutritious meals, included in fees.
This means that our children are taught by certified and experienced Educators to standards set around Australia to get them school ready. Montessori daycare based activities and lessons are researched and pre-planned. They delivered
systematically and sequentially, allowing children to develop literacy, numeracy and extracurricular skills at their own pace to promote deeper insights into the world around them.
Our teaching approach is based on researched and proven methods and practices that work. Children are engaged in age-appropriate learning journeys and receive individual attention in our Montessori daycare. Within safe learning environments that foster a growth mindset, they learn to participate productively in social learning environments. Within our lessons, we utilise cooperative learning activities to ensure diverse learners are catered for.
Both socially and materially we maintain, while continually growing our rich repertoire of resources to provide a high standard of care for our children. Our learning materials are all high-quality Montessori based aids that inspire interest and promote understanding. Additionally, we encourage respectful and open communication between children, families and all staff. We believe that this positive partnership is a vital resource to tap in order to provide the best child care and early education experience for our young children.
Early childhood wellbeing is a complex multi-faceted construct that encompasses physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual dimensions. It plays a prominent role in children’s learning and development as it determines their ability to engage confidently and positively with their environment, heavily impacting their potential to learn. As asserted by educational policy documents “wellbeing is central to learning and learning contributes to wellbeing.” At our Montessori child care centre in Darra, we take a keen interest in our children’s wellbeing to ensure that they are physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively ready to learn. A big part of Wellbeing is nourishing children’s bodies with a healthy and nutritious diet. We have partnered with ‘Yummies for Little Tummies,’ to provide children with premium home-style cooking with a dietitian-approved menu where nutrition takes a front seat. There is a large variety on the menu with everything being completely nut, seafood and egg-free and special dietary needs can also be catered for ensuring that no child misses out.
