At Zonkie Montessori it is important to us to lead children to be aware of wonder – if they marvel at the world around them, then we have succeeded!
We also know that one teaches a person’s heart and not his head...we observe the child and help him perform his best in his particular set of circumstances.
We believe that there must be a balance between working with the materials and playing. A child learns as much from playing as from working: this is where you learn to say you’re sorry and that it is best to hold hands and stick together!
By Zonkie Montessori is dit vir ons belangrik om kinders lus te maak om meer te weet – as hulle in verwondering staan oor wat hulle rondom hulle in die skepping opmerk, het ons in ons doel geslaag!
Ons besef dat ‘n mens nie net vir n kind se kop nie, maar ook vir sy hartjie skoolhou. Ons observeer en help elke kind om sy beste te lewer gegewe sy spesifieke omstandighede.
Ons glo dat daar n balans moet wees tussen werk en speel.
‘n Kind leer net soveel deur te speel as deur te werk: dit is juis in spel waar mens leer wanneer om jammer te se en dat dit die beste is om handjies te vat en saam te staan!
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
"Early childhood education is the key to the betterment of society"
Dr M Montessori
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all."
"Play isn’t the enemy of learning, it’s learning’s partner.Play is like fertilizer for brain growth, it’s crazy not to use it."
Stuart Brown and Christopher Vaughan.
We are a close knit and loyal team, whose first reaction in any situation is to reach out and lend a helping hand.
We have the necessary certificates required by the Department of Health and Social Welfare, namely First Aid I and II and Basic Fire Fighting and Prevention.
