FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS MONTESSORI?
Montessori education is a type of learning where there is not such a formal structure placed on the students and they are free to learn in a way that suits them.
The students negotiate a curriculum with the staff, and individually create their own learning paths. The students’ interests lead the learning.
When they are ready, with the guidance and support of the staff and community, students may choose to study toward NCEA qualifications, as per the NZ curriculum.
Montessori education is a highly regarded approach to education and is over 100 years old, it is widely spread around the globe.
Through education for peace, Montessori provides a conscious effort to create a more peaceful world.
Our experiment explores what education for peace looks like in our community and environment.
Learning happens as students spontaneously explore each and every opportunity available to them; their curiosity and interest encourages their growth.
Education for Peace is the central theme in our community: so - we're a creative learning environment
