Kew Park delivers an authentic Montessori programme. Montessori education is a method of teaching based on the research and practice of Dr. Maria Montessori. It is a student-centred, individualized approach that helps children reach their full potential and encourages them to ask questions, explore, investigate and think for themselves as they acquire skills. The Montessori environment here at Kew Park provides a calm, creative, and challenging environment that responds to each child’s individual needs and inherent love of learning.
We are very proud of the extensive and enriched curriculum that we offer our students, but we are most proud of the nurturing, inspiring and empowering culture of our school.
The values that form the foundation of our school make Kew Park such a special place for students, staff and parents. Three main values that underlie our programme are respect, responsibility and resourcefulness. We value and nurture these qualities in ourselves and in the children. We believe in teaching the children to respect themselves, each other and their environment. We encourage them to be responsible and to be effective problem-solvers.
At Kew Park, we value the unique qualities of every individual. This atmosphere of respect encourages confidence and independence in all our students and develops an early foundation of skills and attitudes for later learning.
