Aims and Objectives:


One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the joy of learning. Here at Little Learners Montessori, We will provide the children with an opportunity to progress and learn at their own pace, in an environment where each individual child is respected, using the materials designed by Dr. Maria Montessori to meet each child's individual needs, encouraging the development of each child's self-confidence, self-esteem, concentration and independence, thereby preparing them for the challenges they will meet in life! Little Learners also operates an "open-door" policy, where parents are welcome to drop in, observe their child/teacher or make an appointment for a private consultation, at any time.
