Children additionally benefit from our Montessori education
Montessori education complements our learning program. Montessori philosophy also values each individual child as part of a close caring, community. Self help and independent learning are encouraged.
Children develop order, concentration, co-ordination, independence
The Montessori materials are designed to aid development with fine motor skills, eye-hand co-ordination, development of all the senses, literacy and numeracy. The materials are multi-sensory, sequential and self-correcting. These hands-on learning materials enable children to see and explore abstract concepts.
Children progress sequentially
Montessori materials lead to learning of abstract ideas. A child learns through his or her senses. By providing interrelated sensorial material, children are guided to correctly use the materials. They are carefully graded to enable sequential learning experiences. Children may choose which materials to use, and are guided to progress at their own pace.
Children enjoy the music and cultural program
Montessori education includes music, art, science, geography, and history. These enable the development of the child’s perception of his environment and the world. There are materials in the Sensorial area from which the child builds a base for these other activities. Music and art are means of communication and self-expression.
Children learn self help and practical skills
Children gain knowledge through the real experience of how to accomplish life skills in a purposeful way. Practical life education revolves around four areas: Caring for the Self, Caring for the Environment, Grace & Courtesy and Movement of Objects. Practical Life exercises teach the child sequencing, develop concentration and aid in language development.
Babies and Toddlers
Our qualified and experienced staff nurture and care for each baby's individual needs.
“We love how the educators give all their time and attention to the upbringing of our baby. The educators are like family now, and know the needs of our baby, just as well as we do. So happy our baby is in the safe hands of the educators at Glandore Child Care Centre.”
Junior Toddlers provides a safe, nuturing environment so walking babies can explore and learn
“The educators at Glandore Child Care are exceptional. They take time to get to know each child, their personalities, needs, language and routine. They give comfort and affection, teach the children and encourage growth in so many ways. My children have developed in leaps and bounds, under the watchful eyes of the educators. I highly recommend Glandore.”.
Children thrive in the Toddler Room, develop physical, social, and self-help skills, and grow in confidence.
“Our second daughter is now attending Glandore. We were so happy with care our first daughter received, we didn’t consider taking her anywhere else. All of the carers are such kind people and the individual care they give each child is amazing. We are so impressed with the activities arranged and the variety and quality of the food the children enjoy. Thank you for your amazing work.”
We collaborate with parents to ensure each baby's routine is followed and their development is closely monitored.
In Junior Toddlers walking babies further develop in communication,social and physical skills
Our busy Toddler Room fosters learning dispositions such as curiosity and creativity
I chose Glandore Child Care Centre as I had heard wonderful things about it.
Now I am the one recommending it. The staff are so loving and caring with my daughter.
I love seeing the daily photos and knowing my daughter is having a great day.
We believe families are the most important care providers and educators in a child’s life. We continuously seek family participation and feedback, through daily interactions, meetings and on-line reporting.
Thank you to the wonderful team at Glandore for caring for our children for six years. It is such a happy friendly environment. The children have a solid foundation for starting school. They have a passion for learning, confidence and the social skills to thrive in school. We could not be more grateful.
