Avoca Montessori School
AVOCA Montessori School is a quality educationally based pre-school, established since 2005. Lorraine McConnell explains that, ‘as an educational approach, the Montessori focus is on the individuality of each child in respect of their needs or talents. Our goal is to help the child maintain their natural joy of learning.
The Montessori environment contains specially designed, manipulative "material for development" which invite children to engage in learning activities of their own individual choice. Under the guidance of a trained teacher, children in a Montessori classroom learn by making discoveries with the materials, cultivating concentration, motivation, self-discipline and a love of learning.
In the calm, ordered space of the Montessori prepared environment, children work on activities of their own choice at their own pace. They experience a blend of freedom and self-discipline in a place specially designed to meet their developmental needs.
The Montessori Method teaches a belief in the “absorbent mind” that children from birth to around age 6 possess limitless motivation to achieve competence within their environment and to perfect skills and understandings.
We aim to provide a rich educational experience for all our pupils in our beautiful purpose-built Montessori classrooms. The children are gently guided through a host of subjects using the Montessori materials.
The concrete materials give the child great confi- dence and a sound understanding of the subject matter. The children are encouraged to work at their own pace.
All aspects of the programme are child-centered, fun and appropriate to their abilities. We operate two morning classes and one afternoon class per day Mon – Fri.
