Little Willow's curriculum fully engages Maria Montessori philosophy in it's teaching style.  Below are two quotes from Maria Montessori which embodies what the staff at Little Willow attempt to fulfil on a daily basis:

  • "It is true we cannot make a genius, we can only give each individual the chance to fulfil their potential to become an independent, secure and balanced human being."  Maria Montessori.

  • First the education of the senses, then the education of the intellect -  "The essential thing is for the task to arouse such an interest that it engages the child's whole personality" Maria Montessori.

However, we are aware that most of our grade R graduates will subsequently be enrolled in a Traditional School. It is for this reason that we have modified the final year of of Grade R to prepare our candidates for the traditional school teaching style. We have found this to be extremely effective and our graduates have shown to very successfully make the transition to traditional schooling. Here we have seen Little Willow Graduates excelling in all educational spheres, many in leadership positions.

As learning is essentially a sequential process, we believe your child's university education begins in Pre-School.

Give your child a Head Start in life....They are our leaders of tomorrow!!
