and preparation for school"

What Is Montessori?
Monday, April 11 2016
Montessori is a method of education that is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play.
In Montessori classrooms children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teacher offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.
Why Move Your Child To Our Montessori Centre
Monday, 11 April 11 2016
One hundred years ago, Dr Maria Montessori, an inspirational educator, developed a unique method of education, based on research into childhood learning.
The Montessori approach fosters children's love of learning and encourages independence by providing an environment of activities and materials which children use at their own pace.
This builds self-confidence, inner discipline, a sense of self-worth and instils positive social behaviour. The approach forms the basis for lifelong learning.
In today's world it is more important than ever that children become motivated individuals able to develop to their full potential.
Montessori takes into account the whole child and his place in the community, hence its relevance for today and the future.
What Is The Child Care Benefit ?
Monday, 11 April 11 2016
Child Care Benefit is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of your child care.
You can get CCB if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending child care services approved by, or registered with, the Government.
Our Mudgeeraba Montessori Kindergarten is focused on building strong foundations for learning.
We went through the assessments and ratings for the centre in the Early Learning Framework which we were very proud to meet "EXCEEDING IN OVER ALL RATING".
At Montessori Gold Coast our qualified Primary School teacher extends skills already developed as well as (or while) nurturing new learning and knowledge through practise, exploration and tactile activities.
Working within our Montessori Kindergarten means working within a program designed to prepare children for the rigors and expectations of BIG school in a nurturing environment.
Montessori materials are not the only things that we focus on.
We do etiquette and courtesy, gross motor and fine motor, music and art, a geography and history lessons.
We work on all aspects of the child; "The Whole Child". Not just the academic material.
What’s the difference? Everyone is talking about letting children play to discover and learn.
I agree BUT for quality outcomes the teacher needs to prepare the play in a way that engages and entices.
It’s not about opening a packaged toy and expecting quality outcomes, it’s not about fantasy play that confuses their reality but about play opportunities that build their grasp on reality and practical experience.
It’s about being provided with the opportunity to practise what mum and dad’s role model every day.
Our Mudgeeraba Kindergarten teacher is qualified and experienced Primary school teacher - so our students are prepared to take on the challenges of big school, not just academically but with confidence about the expectations of behavior and social work dynamics.
Ready For Big School
Any time with us is beneficial to your child/children.
We work closely with our families to understand and plan for the needs of the children.
We are proud receivers of accolades from the local primary school who speak highly of our well-mannered and ready to learn, well prepared children.
So, if you are considering moving your child or you are relocating from interstate/overseas, we assure you that our service is an investment in your child’s education, not an overpriced baby-sitting service.
We understand that parents are busy, that time is valuable and convenience is a high motivator when making decisions.
Our service is worth the change for your child. Changing to us is not too difficult and we will support you and your family with visits to ensure it’s as comfortable as possible for everyone involved.
