Most unique about Oran Park Montessori Academy, is our scientifically based approach to learning that is focused on the holistic development of the child. We believe that every child is a natural born scientist, and that the world is their laboratory. This is why every aspect of our Oran Park early learning centre has been purposefully designed to inspire and engage young minds.
Through the teaching principles, practices and materials associated with Montessori Education, we deliver hands-on learning experiences that are tailored to each unique child. We believe that our role as Montessori Educators is to provide our students with the educational support, learning opportunities, and tools that they need to master the knowledge and skills that will help them achieve their full potential.
Ultimately, our goal is to activate each child’s own “inner teacher” so that they actively participate and embrace education as a foundation for life. To learn more about the Montessori Philosophy of Education, and how it guides our principle and practice, book a tour today by calling 1300 000 162.
