Philosophy is the love of wisdom and a thirst for knowledge. The Preschool programme weaves practical philosophical exercises and Montessori learnings together with the Early Childhood Curriculum “Te Whariki”.
The resulting experiential learning for children places significance on values, relationships and children’s contributions to their own learning and that of others.
Mindfulness is an important aspect of the programme that teaches children how to be aware of their thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and the surrounding environment. In today’s busy world, the ability to centre themselves allows children to pay attention to the task at hand, an important skill to take through their lives.
