Newcastle Child Care Centre
Montessori Academy’s Newcastle child care, preschool, and long day care centre is currently expected to open in mid-2019 pending Service Approval by the Department of Education. Once open, the centre will deliver an exceptional Montessori Education Program for children aged 0 – 6 years in a long day care format. The campus is conveniently located on Level 1 of Marketown Newcastle at 23 Steel St, Newcastle West NSW 2302 and will open from 7:30am – 6:00pm on weekdays.
Montessori Academy’s Newcastle child care centre offers three prepared classroom environments that are specifically designed to cater to the unique developmental needs and interests of infants, toddlers, and preschool students. Each classroom offers a full suite of Montessori Materials that have been carefully curated based on years of scientific observation about how children learn.
As students progress through the Montessori Education Program, the prepared environment encourages them to explore the five Montessori Curriculum Areas, including: Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language and Culture. Through hands-on learning experiences using the Montessori Materials, students develop foundational knowledge and skills that will prepare them for school and life success.
Montessori Academy’s Newcastle child care centre also offers a grand outdoor play area enriched with cubby house, construction area, sandpits, veggie patch, gross motor activities, creative play, fixed equipment, and a dramatic play area. The seamless integration of engaging classrooms, and natural outdoor play spaces, offers children the ideal place to cultivate a life-long love of learning as a positive foundation for school and life success.

Montessori Education Program
The Montessori Education Program is based on the belief that every child is a capable and willing learner that is able to achieve their full potential when provided with the right learning environment, tools, and guidance. Doctor Montessori, the Founder of Montessori Education, established the core principles of Montessori Education based on more than 50 years of scientific research into how children learn. This included the concepts of the prepared classroom environment, self-correcting Montessori Materials, the Montessori Curriculum, and child-centred approach to teaching. Through Montessori Education, children of all ages establish the academic, social, and wellbeing foundations to thrive, not only in school, but also in life.Enquire Now
