Welcome to The Learning Sanctuary Thebarton Montessori!
The Learning Sanctuary Thebarton Montessori combines an aesthetically pleasing and stimulating environment made especially for children from 6 months – 6 years of age, together with the experience and dedication of our specially Montessori trained educators. We maintain a quality education in beautiful, natural environments that create a love of learning, independence and self-confidence.
The curriculum at our centre caters for the purposeful activity, growth and development of each child. The environment allows the children to be independent and to manage their needs without constant educator support. This freedom to work, to make choices and to manage daily challenges develops self-esteem and self-discipline.
At The Learning Sanctuary Thebarton Montessori we provide the Montessori philosophy in early education. We cater for all children however educate in a way in which the children are guiding their own learning. We use specific materials/activities and educate the children in five key learning areas, Practical Life, Sensorial, Literacy, Numeracy and Culture. Practical life is an area in which we pride ourselves on. We allow children to use real life tools and utensils that they would see in their everyday lives. Children engage in cooking lessons, gardening, cleaning and washing. We also offer lessons for children in the afternoons where they can pick what they would like to engage with. We offer Mandarin and Greek lessons, PE, music, arts and crafts and sustainability.
The Montessori curriculum covers five main pillars, including:
- Sensorial (training of senses)
- Practical Life
- Cultural Studies
We love being a part of the local community and getting our children involved with the wider environment. Our natural outdoor environments also offer enriching learning opportunities. We often take children on environmental walks, excursions and incursions. Some examples are, dance classes at the centre, visits from the circus as well as walks to the local supermarket and to local schools. We always welcome families and friends into our service to share their knowledge and skills.
We welcome you to visit us at The Learning Sanctuary Thebarton Montessori today. We are always available to take you on a tour and give more information about the Montessori program. Please feel welcome to visit us or call any time. We look forward to seeing you soon!
