A Message From
I would like to welcome you and your family to my daycare and
Providing a quality upbringing and education is the hope and wish of
every parent. Here at Kidsdom Montessori, my staff and I are able to
give you over twelve years of experience in teaching using Montessori
methods, not only with the pre-schoolers but with the infants as well.
Home-based daycares have a tradition of giving children a warm, loving
and nurturing environment that is quite similar to the atmosphere that
you would find in your own home. Our advantage is that we also provide
the structure that allows your child to flourish at their fullest
Please take a moment to read this website, and I’m sure that you will
come to agree that there would be no better place for your child to be.
» The Montessori
The foundation of the Montessori philosophy is based upon the idea that
children should work at their own pace, according to their own
strengths in surroundings that help to develop their intelligence, as
well as social and physical abilities.
A key concept in a Montessori school is the idea that a child is an
individual with an acute sensitivity with regards to the environment
around them; so much so that much of how and what they learn in their
early years comes from this perceptive stimulation.
As a result, the child should have a reasonable amount of freedom to do
as they please, while at the same time being wholly immersed in an
environment which stimulates their senses as well as exercising their
creativity. Literally their classroom is their world, providing
exposure to materials and experiences that foster greater intellectual
Observers of Montessori children note that they are confident, caring,
independent as well as enthusiastic and motivated learners.
Our daycare is rooted in the belief that the primary needs of infants
and toddlers are love and a great deal of attention. We understand the
varying needs of infants, from a sense of security for the young to the
establishment of self-identity for older.
