At Montessori Noosa we help our students acquire the essential knowledge, thinking skills, and depth of character required to flourish as joyous children today, and as successful adults tomorrow, who strive to leave the world and the people on it in a state that is better than what we received from our forebears. Our core means to this end is the educational philosophy of Dr Maria Montessori.
Children are imprinted by everything they sense around them – not just the academic curriculum they are exposed to, but how that curriculum is delivered and assessed, how they are encouraged or permitted to relate to one another and to the adults around them, and how they are encouraged or allowed to relate to the environment. Everything children experience is stored in memory and will have the ability to create norms which influence their expectations for the future. For this reason we are careful and deliberate about the culture and learning choices which we engage and don’t engage in at Montessori Noosa.
