Choosing a school for your child is an important decision which can set the tone for their educational journey.

Ballito Bay Montessori owner Caro Smith, said there is nothing quite like the authentic Montessori philosophy of learning, and the results it yields speak for itself.

“Our method is sound. Our goal is simple: helping your child prepare for the future.

“Our unique learning tools coupled with just the right amount of guidance, plenty of independence, and lots of social interaction all feed into the trademark of the Montessori method’s self-directed educational process.

“The classroom is prepared by the teacher to encourage independence, freedom within limits, and a sense of order,” said Caro.

The teacher, child, and environment create a learning triangle.

In order to do this they focus on the individual’s development and tailor their teaching methods to enhance each child.

“With the use of Montessori equipment combined with the Directress (teacher) presenting activities to the child on a one-on-one basis, the personal interests of each child are embraced, celebrated, and nurtured and your child’s progress is monitored on a daily basis.”

Each child works at his / her own pace and chooses his / her own activities.

They work alone or in groups which stimulates learning further as older children share knowledge and get younger children excited about learning.

Caro said, “ we focus on the individual child’s development and tailor our teaching methods to enhance each child.”

Encouraging children to work together, with each other’s’ best interests in mind, builds social skills and challenges them to learn.
