“There is a great sense of community within the Montessori classroom, where children of differing ages work together in an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competitiveness. There is respect for the environment and for the individuals within it, which comes through experience of freedom within the community.”

Dr Maria Montessori (as cited in Elizabeth Hainstock, 1986, p. 81 – The Essential Montessori)

There are numerous ways for children to think and express themselves, painting is just one of them. Through their art work, the children articulate their perceptions of the world, creating delightful stories with each masterpiece.

Kia Ora, kahuku whanau.
Welcome to 2024! The kahuku tamariki have been diligently utilising Montessori materials since their return from the holidays. It’s fascinating to observe the level of enthusiasm they bring to their tasks. Below are
images capturing their commitment to their work.

The Montessori Method fosters rigorous, self-motivated growth for children and adolescents in all areas of their development—cognitive, emotional, social, and physical.

Playing with water supports learning across all strands of Te Whāriki. In particular, it supports the Exploration strand, where children gain confidence in and control of their bodies, and where they learn strategies for active exploration, thinking and reasoning.

Water play gives children the opportunity to develop useful social skills while playing alongside other children as part of the Contribution strand and, where conflicts arise, there are opportunities to practise problem-solving. As part of the Belonging strand, they develop ideas about the limits and boundaries of acceptable behaviour.

Whare Anuhe’s Dress Up Day!

25/10/2023

Observation plays a big role in our prepared environment. What do you think a teacher sees when they sit quietly and observe? Maria Montessori once said “The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.” Indeed, it is magical to see!

“The child is a worker and a diligent observer. He looks straight at things; he stares at them for a long time; he is interested in learning all he can about his environment. Perhaps he is staring at a flower, absorbing its image. This work gives him happiness and peace because, in doing so, he is following his natural urges. ”
Maria Montessori
The 1946 London Lectures, p. 56
