Our Drop Off Classes
We are offering two classes a week where parents can avail of dropping their kids off to our centre in Yeronga for two hours. Drop Off classes run from 11.30am to 1.00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Classes for term two start on the third week of April beginning Monday the 20th and run consistently for ten weeks.
You can enrol for both Drop Off classes or just one.
Children need to be 3 years or older and able to independently use the toilet. Classes are $33 per session.
We, at I AM Montessori, believe that a little bit of Montessori is better than none. Therefore, even if your children are not in Montessori Day Care, one Drop Off class with us helps!
However, you can never have too much Montessori either so if they already in a Montessori Environment drop off classes further enhance Montessori and your child’s learning.
Drop Off classes are a great opportunity for children to be immersed in the Montessori Prepared Environment whatever they’re situation is presently.
Drop Off classes are completely child lead for the whole two hour work cycle. The session is broken up to roughly 100 minutes of Montessori work activities with the other twenty for food (if they wish) and group time at the end of the session.
During the 100 minutes of Montessori activities, the five areas of the curriculum, Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Culture and Mathematics are accessible. The teacher in our Drop Off classes is qualified with a Diploma in Childrens Services and trained in Montessori Teaching, specialising in working with 3-6years. It is her belief that every child has the capacity to learn all the exercises in the classroom starting from the basic pink tower all the way up to maths concepts such as multiplication and division.
Parents who currently avail of the Drop Off classes love hearing all the stories and the information that happened during the classes and most children are only too happy to tell them all about it. Parents who believe in the greatness of Montessori want their children to be independent, self-confident, self-correcting, able to problem solve and work out hard problems, able to grow and flourish in an environment that has freedom within limits and is perfectly suited to challenging their children’s needs and wants at that stage!
There is a maximum of 7 children in each class and there are two adults on site.
