The role of the teacher is best described as a guide promoting a link between the child and the environment. The teachers prepare the environment using natural, concrete experiences to nurture the child’s ability as a creative, disciplined, motivated and independent thinker. Our low student to teacher ratios allow for an individualised program for each child. Through detailed observation our teachers gain an insight into each child’s interests and needs and collaborate as a team to plan individual and small group learning programs.
Lindfield Montessori Preschool aims to follow the methods and recommended practices of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI). AMI is internationally recognised as the highest quality and longest continually practiced Montessori training. The Board of Directors understands the importance of employing teachers who are AMI trained, as they possess an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the philosophy and materials that create a quality Montessori environment.
