A six hour option is available Monday to Friday from 8.45am to 2.45pm.
A full day option is available Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 5.00pm.
A substantial discount is offered for children enrolled five days per week to support families to maximise their attendance and so maximise their child’s potential in the Montessori curriculum.
The centre is closed for statutory holidays and for an additional period of three weeks over the Christmas – New Year period.
The educational program offered in the centres is identical for each attendance option. Children must be enrolled for a minimum of two consecutive days. A child’s progress within the program is directly related to participation. Best Montessori practice is to attend five sessions or days per week because consistent attendance in the programme creates better social cohesion and allows for successive repetition and greater independent exploration in the Montessori curriculum. If you are considering Montessori primary, your child will need to maximise attendance to attain appropriate preparation for the primary curriculum. Admission of children over the age of 4 with no prior Montessori experience is at the discretion of the Head Directress in consultation with the family.
