At the Montessori Metaphysic Centre of Light we aim to create a safe and loving space for growth and development. In line with Montessori philosophy, we envision loving and creative beings who are spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically independent and ready to consciously embrace their life’s journey. Through a Montessori and Metaphysical approach we provide children with the tools to continuously develop their skills for life long learning.Treating all individuals with respect and integrity encouraging the understanding of the interconnectedness of life.
We are committed to the educational philosophies and approach originated by Dr Maria Montessori:
We nurture and promote a commitment to society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights. Encourage a learner centered philosophy for the development of each individual. Ensure each child develops to his or her full potential academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually.
"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn."
