• A welcoming environment that engages each child.

    "What the hand does, the mind remembers."
    M Montessori

    Montessori Education is a science which uses scientifically developed materials to assist the development of children in all areas of life – creating a “WORLD OF PROGRESSIVE INTEREST”.

    What does that mean? Children learn to love learning. They learn that their world is a magical place and they become aware of their own abilities & capacities.

    In line with Montessori philosophy, we envision loving and creative beings who are spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically independent and ready to consciously embrace their life’s journey.

  • National Curriculum Peacock Montessori Curriculum.

    Peacock Montessori Academy curriculum is clearly laid out with reference to the government’s attainment targets and key stages, enabling parents to clearly understand their child’s progress. Montessori education is particularly suited to achieving the cross-curriculum approach encouraged by the National Curriculum.

    The idea of cross-curriculum themes was originated by Dr Montessori and is achieved by regular project work encompassing and developing many different subjects at the same time.

  • Assessments

    A feature of Montessori education is that each child is continually observed and assessed by their teachers. Parents are requested to meet the teachers at least twice a year, at which point they will receive a summary of their child’s progress.

    There will also be a full written report on each child per year.

    Competition and examination are not a part of the Montessori Method. However, older children approaching entrance examinations will be given tutorial guidance.
