Welcome to The Learning Sanctuary Norwood Montessori!
We offer a Montessori approach to early learning in a relaxed and homely environment. Our centre adapts naturally to the beauty of our surroundings and inspires a love of learning under the guidance of specially trained teachers. We maintain a quality education in beautiful, natural environments that create a joy of learning, independence and self-confidence.
Our main objective is to provide a Montessori lead, carefully planned, stimulating environment, which will help children to develop within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes and ideas essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning.
The Learning Sanctuary Norwood Montessori is open from 8:00am to 5:00pm and our Montessori learning sessions are provided from 8:45am to 3:15pm. Our age specific rooms allow for our specialised approach to be taught in the most relevant manner.
Our centre is very passionate with regarding our sustainability program. Sustainable practices and procedures are implemented into our everyday routines. We have a worm farm, recycling program/composting bins and water management procedures and of course our veggie garden.
At The Learning Sanctuary Norwood Montessori we have two veggie gardens, one in each classrooms outdoor learning environment. The children often use these ingredients: herbs, fruit and veggies for programmed cooking experiences as well as feeding our centre pets: chickens and a rabbit.
Nutritious morning and afternoon tea are provided each day and children are encouraged to prepare their meals themselves to further develop practical life skills. We have a very large outdoor area that the children love to explore, we also offer another large yard out the front of our centre with a small court yard attached.
Each child’s health and well-being is extremely important to us. We run a physical education soccer program run each Tuesday and Thursday; 20 minutes for our 16 months – 3 years age group and 25 minutes for our 3 – 6 years children.
