Montessori Education

Dr. Maria Montessori, born in Italy in 1870, revolutionized education with her hands-on learning approach, opening the first Casa dei Bambini in 1907. Her method, emphasizing independence and tailored learning, gained global acclaim, with schools worldwide.
 
Montessori's vision for "Education through Peace" earned her three Nobel Peace Prize nominations. Implementing Montessori principles fosters future leaders adept at navigating a changing world.

Our Programs

At Montessori @ Home Independent School, we pride ourselves on offering a seamless and comprehensive educational journey from infancy to adolescence, ensuring continuity, consistency, and interconnectedness at every stage.

 

Our internationally recognized, robust curriculum follows a vertically grouped format, allowing children to progress effortlessly from one program to the next. From our nurturing Nido (3 months to 15 months) to Toddlers (15 months to 3 years), Preschool (3 – 6 years), and the dynamic Elementary curriculum (6 years – exit), each stage builds upon the foundational principles of Montessori education while challenging students to reach new heights of academic excellence and personal growth.

Montessori @ Home is an amazing school, my son is thriving, the teachers are amazing and so focused on every child's individual needs, whilst still giving them the freedom to explore. The school is equipped with only the best activities, high standard of teaching and also compassionate and involved in wonderful projects supporting people in need. The best choice we have made as parents! Nici and the rest of the team are the best!

My daughter joined Montessori @ Home this year, and I must say she is such a happy child.
 
She struggles with ADHD, and traditional schooling was not for her.
 
She comes home and tells us about what she has learned. They celebrate each child individually, she is really loving her new environment.
 
Thank you Nici and team!

Montessori@Home Paarl truly offers our girls the best at home school environment. It is a place where they feel safe and supported in the same way they feel at home.
It provides us with great comfort knowing we are leaving our precious girls in the hands of a team who truly cares for each child and provides for their individual needs.
Montessori @ Home Paarl is a community in which we as a family feel at home.

A school where all children are treated with respect and care, with the underlying belief that they are capable of so much more than what society gives them credit for.
My son was in the pre-school school since the age of 2 and seeing how he blossomed and how he was treated, motivated me to move my daughter from a mainstream primary school at the age of 8 to the Montessori@Home Primary School.
