Cycle 1

  • The Montessori preschool offers a unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of the child’s sensitive years between three and six, when they can absorb information from an enriched environment.

    With the aid of a specially Prepared Environment the child develops the skills of concentration and independence in a natural way. The children in a Montessori Classroom are able to learn at their own individual pace. When a child indicates they are ready and interested, the directress guides them to a new lesson. By pursuing their individual interests in a Montessori classroom, the child gains an early enthusiasm for learning, which is the foundation for all further education.

    The Cycle 1 program is a 3 year program for children aged 3-6. There are 29 children in each room, aiming for equal numbers of 1st, 2nd and 3rd year children.  Children remain in the same class for the total period of enrolment.

    The Centre runs two Cycle 1 rooms, the Fern Room and the Rose Room. Each room has two staff members with Montessori and Early Childhood qualifications.

    In their 2nd year children also do some extended days.  In the 3rd year children complete their Prep Year at our centre.  As the program follows the needs and abilities of your child, extended days are offered on an individual basis by the Directress of the room.

    Children completing the Cycle 1 program are eligible to continue on to Cycle 2. 

    Fees for the Cycle 1 program are in the Schedule of Fees Policy.
