started Sandton Montessori Preschool in 2007 out of our love for
teaching children. We are currently based in the very peaceful
suburb of Sandown, in the heart of Sandton catering for a maximum of
70 learners. One of our core attributes is that we give individual
attention, and so provide each child with what they need, allowing
them to grow and develop to their full potential.
The extremely high standards of education for each individual child
are the focus of all at Sandton Montessori Pre School. We implement
the Montessori philosophy in our tranquil and unique environment
whilst honouring our commitment to providing a well rounded
education with varied extra mural activities. It is this basic tenet
that establishes a solid foundation for each child ensuring a
lifetime of creative thinking and learning, as well as developing
their personalities and guiding them to becoming respected citizens
of the world.
All our teachers are Montessori qualified; two of these possessing
grade R qualifications. All our teachers are fulll members of the
Montessori Foundation and registered members of the South African
Council of Educators (S.A.C.E). Our teachers are vastly experienced
as teachers for many years and together with their four assistants,
are all trained in Child First Aid, with continual advancement
courses being done annually.
The directresses and assistants are inspired and motivated by the
same love and respect that Maria Montessori showed towards children.
In this true spirit of Montessori values, we strive to meet the
individual needs of each child entrusted in our care, helping them
to develop the habits, skills and attitudes that will ultimately
shape their future and enrich their lives forever. We teach core
values like respect for self, respect for others and the
environment, kindness, tolerance and confidence.
We appreciate that each learner is unique and are at different
stages of development, so our objective is to not to compare their
abilities with one another, but observe their interests and build
individualized lesson plans around them.
Sandton Montessori Pre-School is a multi cultural private school and
a full member of South African Montessori Association (SAMA) since
our inception. Our school is fully compliant with all health,
hygiene and fire and safety regulations.
We are open to children irrespective of race, colour or creed and
those experiencing barriers to learning are considered for
enrolment, dependent upon the schools ability to deal with those
specific needs. Our motto is to honour the child and to aid their
individual growth, bringing them into the life that is their right.
