Southbank Montessori is dedicated to providing inspiring learning environments based on the Montessori philosophy and principles of learning which encourage independence, develop confidence and respect while guiding and nurturing each child’s individual development.
We acknowledge and honour the sense of belonging to the family children from all cultures bring to their pre-school experience and nurture and develop this sense of belonging to embrace the children’s pre-school and wider social community. We recognise that children come to us with individual strengths, capabilities, learning styles and interests and build on these by developing collaborative learning environments.
We create prepared inside and outside learning environments where children freely explore their natural sense of wonder and choose their own work with enthusiasm and interest.
We respect children’s individual emergent skills by providing them with opportunities which allow for autonomous learning.
We provide an environment and guidance which encourages the children’s development of kindness, courtesy and self-discipline.
Southbank Montessori embraces a community of children, families and early childhood educators who work together to build and maintain a culture of caring where respect, integrity and tolerance are created and nourished.
