The Children’s House approach to early childhood education is underpinned by the Montessori philosophy and reflects the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework. This aims to provide children with a sense of belonging, recognise and celebrate their being and support their becoming.
Children’s House operates as an inclusive early education centre where the community (staff and families) “acknowledge people’s shared humanity, celebrate diversity and promote acceptance, belonging and participation.” This culture of inclusion will be promoted and reflected in all aspects of kindergarten life.
A rich Montessori curriculum is offered in the areas of practical life, sensorial, language and mathematics.
