Welcome to our website, and to our School!
“The direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.”
– Plato (427 BC – 347 BC)
As the Principal of the Caboolture Montessori School, may I start by asking the following questions:
- What are your expectations of the educational system your child will belong to?
- What do you hope will remain with your child at the end of their compulsory education?
- What attributes do you think will be required in your child’s future?
- What qualities would you like your child to have?
These are just some of the questions we have been asking ourselves at Caboolture Montessori School.
Doctor Montessori worked to establish a curriculum that will provide opportunities for children to progress at their own level, using abilities they own and experiences they can utilise to enhance their learning. With this in mind, and with what we believe families would expect, the staff at Caboolture Montessori school work continuously in preparing an appropriate environment.
We prepare an environment that will address each child’s developmental stage with the aim of providing activities to meet developmental needs and future possibilities whilst having fun. Our school is in a wonderfully natural setting, away from the hustle and bustle of stressful city life; however, we plan events that bring new experiences to our school, so that children can explore the world around them.
The adults in our environment are passionate about Montessori and learning and are themselves continuous learners, as are your children. We hold great responsibility in educating your child; this is done with safety, care and excitement. The children’s learning journey takes on specific meaning for the staff and other students in the school.
The Caboolture Montessori School and I invite you personally to come and visit us, so that we can show you around our lovely environment and share with you what we can offer your child at this very important stage of their learning.
I look forward in meeting you personally and to begin a unique relationship between your family and our community.
In conclusion, may I adopt Doctor Montessori’s own words:
“Our methods take into consideration the spontaneous mental development of children,
and assist it with means derived from observation and experience.”
