A Safe and Loving Space for Growth and Development

Montessori Education is a science which uses scientifically developed materials to assist the development of children in all areas of life - creating a "WORLD OF PROGRESSIVE INTEREST". What does that mean? Children learn to love learning. They learn that their world is a magical place and they become aware of their own abilities & capacities. In line with Montessori philosophy, we envision loving and creative beings who are spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically independent and ready to consciously embrace their life’s journey. Through a Montessori and Metaphysical approach we provide children with the tools to continuously develop their skills for life long learning. - Treating all individuals with respect and integrity encouraging the understanding of the inter-connectedness of life. Advanced learning of subjects: Sensorial, Language, Reading, Writing, Maths, Practical life, Geography, Zoology and Botany. The objective of our HIGH SCHOOL is to meet the academic and social needs and interests of the adolescent: specific consideration and allowance must be made for their beginning steps towards independence, making their own decisions, identifying themselves with others, rapid growth, and the possible lack of harmony - physically, mentally and in social relationships.
