Melville Montessori pre-primary school is located in the residential area of Westdene. The school is situated on the border of Westdene and Melville. Our guard Jabu has been a part of our establishment for the past 3 years and he oversees the security of the school and looks after the general upkeep of the beautiful gardens in between his security duties.
MMS has been in existence for 24 years. We are a small school, which runs on the Montessori approach and the staff are here to meet the growing needs of young children during their formative years. The children have a friendly, homely environment in which to grow. The ambience of the school is light and happy and one instantly feels calm and tranquility when entering through the gate.
By recognizing the needs of each child we help our children to develop confidence and build their self-esteem to its fullest. Our children move on to primary schools of their choice, well equipped to continue developing in their school years ahead.
The staff are dedicated and are all Montessori trained excepting for the assistant teachers that work alongside the qualified directresses. We all have updated first aid training. Our school is divided into different areas found in the Montessori curriculum e.g. language, mathematics, practical life, sensorial, cultural and music appreciation. Each area houses a qualified directress who is responsible for the teaching of her own specific subject.
The Montessori approach to learning allows for a child to develop at his/her own pace and to explore their surroundings through their five senses. There are five main needs for children, namely:-
• Joy in learning
• Love of order
• The need to be independent
• The need to be respected and listened to
• Interest in fact and fiction
