Great Beginnings, we believe wholeheartedly in the
teaching philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori.
Her ideas regarding education have proven to be
timeless, with the centenary anniversary of the
opening of the first Montessori Casa Dei Bambini
having been celebrated in 2007.
The Montessori approach has endured as it is
rooted in a deep understanding of the natural
development of the child. In each child, there
exist energies that work in tandem to help the
child grow and develop into an unique individual.
We cannot tap directly into these energies but
can manipulate them by providing a suitable environment
for the child to learn and mature in.
Our school has been carefully designed with this
concept of the prepared environment in mind, with
Directresses who provide a dynamic link between
the children and the environment. In our school,
the aim is to work with the child’s natural
tendencies and not against them, thus ensuring
that learning is fun and self-motivated.
