Ficino Montessori Preschool is an intimate boutique early childhood centre for children aged between three and five years old. We offer care for your child from 8.30am – 3.30pm (our Standard Day) or 7.30am – 5.30pm (our Long Day).
Located in the heart of Mount Eden, adjacent to its sister school Ficino School (primary and intermediate level), we offer your child a home away from home; a place where they can learn and play happily with love and support from their teachers.
Our calm and friendly atmosphere will provide space for your child to explore, enquire, experiment and practise new skills at their own pace, all with encouragement and support from their teachers.
Ficino Montessori Preschool’s holistic approach helps children to develop all aspects of their character and explore their full potential.
Self-awareness and mindfulness techniques like ‘the Pause’ provide welcome pockets of calm for young children in their stimulating day.
Ficino Montessori Preschool offers a non-denominational spiritual foundation for your child. We welcome children of all cultures, faiths and religions. Put simply, we teach the children to recognize what is good and true in themselves and others, regardless of culture or nationality.
Treating others with care, respect and courtesy is part of everyday life at Ficino Montessori Preschool.
Our values help guide our students’ beliefs, attitudes and behaviour.
We believe in simplicity. The learning space has been designed to be welcoming and calming, allowing the children’s attention to focus on the individual or group activity chosen or presented.
We have both full-time and part-time staff at the Preschool which ensures we can offer the best teacher-to-child ratios for your child.
Preschool children wear a uniform that gives them a clear identity and a sense of belonging and pride in their Preschool.
