Inspired by the Montessori Method, Garden Road Montessori Preschool offers our children aged from 18 months to six years old a loving and stimulating environment in which to learn and grow.
What is the Montessori Method?
The Montessori Method was developed by Maria Montessori, the first Italian woman to earn a medical degree. Montessori believed the first six years of a child’s life while still learning and absorbing information unconsciously are the most vital in terms of their development. She placed emphasis on the value of environmental experience in education as well as the development of the ‘whole child’.
Our teaching staff under the direction of founder and Principal Delicia Moraleda are dedicated to ensuring each child feels happy and valued while they learn in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Our classes operate on the Montessori principle of freedom within limits. Each child is celebrated and taught as an individual so that they are able grow to their fullest potential.
We allow our children to have fun while they learn through exploration and experimentation. We focus on developing social skills, a positive attitude towards work, creativity, respect, and compassion for others.
