Our aim is to develop confident, independent, and happy children. We are able to do this by introducing each child to the joy of learning in a stimulating, loving, and carefully prepared environment. Each child is able to work with the specialised learning materials at his own pace according to his own skills and needs. Each child is taught individually with the materials therefore meeting the child’s individual needs. The children learn that School can be an unending adventure one that inspires a lifetime of discovery. The School is here to nurture your child and celebrate his/her uniqueness. We are here to help you with the important work of guiding your child’s intellectual, emotional and physical development. For over 28 years, Julia Gorham a well recognized Montessori Educator, has developed an excellent and highly successful learning programme for young children that has provided children with

Dr Colinda Linde
A parent’s focus is always on the well being and happiness of their child, and whenever there is a major decision to be made, this is even more so. The choice of school, especially in the formative years, is one of the most nerve-wracking for the modern parent-so many options, so many options, but how to know which one will nurture and grow your little one in the best possible way? When you leave your precious child in the care of strangers, for several hours every day. and have no idea what they are learning and storing as part of their make-up, you have to be sure about your decision. With this in mind, we contacted the Field and Study Montessori Preschool. By then we knew clearly what we did NOT want (harsh and autocratic headmistresses, children lumped together as a uniform mass, individuality pathologised or discounted, chaos in the classroom), so it was with pleasure that we encountered quite the opposite. From the very first contact with a teacher at the school, to meeting with the head, there was uniform professionalism and a genuine desire to understand the diverse needs of ourselves as parents, and those of each of our children. All four of us have felt heard and nurtured, as well as through gaining skills such as problem-solving, conflict resolution, and individualised input (academically and emotionally) for both children, has been a wonderful experience to watch unfold. It is truly amazing what potential flows outward from a child, when they are in an optimal environment! It has been a rich and fulfilling experience this year, and all of us will have fond and happy memories of this year. If you are considering a Montessori approach, yet with awareness of preparing children for schooling in a traditional environment, I recommend a visit to this school. May you be as pleasantly surprised as we were, by attention to detail and a sincere wish to make a positive difference for every child.
