A gorgeous home environment, living the montessori philosophy, 7:30am - 5:30pm
At HomeGrown Montessori we believe Montessori is a way of life. We believe the best environment for children under 5 is in a home environment with personalised, quality care. We strongly believe in the importance of young children in a home-like environment where they can learn primarily through nature and practical life.
“A home environment, prepared the Montessori way is the ultimate care for children 0 to 3.” - I Am Montessori
Children at HomeGrown Montessori are able to work and play at their own pace in a safe, caring, calm, homely environment where they can feel comfortable and loved by friends and educators.
With low ratios we are able to truely know the child and observe what their interests and developmental stages are at any time.
Young children thrive in nature. “When children come into contact with nature they reveal their strength.” - Maria Montessori Because of this, HomeGrown Montessori incorporates nature into our day where ever possible. The children work with plenty on natural sunlight, fresh air and spend time outside everyday. We grow our own food, work with natural materials and go on natural walks whenever possible.
Practical Life activities are not only loved by children but they form a great foundation for their future life, learning and most importantly their independence.
"The exercises of Practical Life are formative activities. They involve inspiration, repetition, and concentration on precise details. They take into account the natural impulses of the special periods of childhood. Though for the moment the exercises have no merely practical aims, they are a work of adaptation to the environment. Such adaptation to the environment and efficient functioning therein is the very essence of a useful education." Maria Montessori
