Philosophy:

Angus Glen Montessori programme is based on the work of female physician and educator Dr. Maria Montessori who, through her research and studies, helped to change the course of education in the early 1900s. Montessori recognizes that children learn in many different ways and at their own pace. Montessori is consciously designed to recognize and address different learning styles, helping students learn to study most effectively. Students’ progress as they master new skills, moving ahead as quickly as they are ready.

Montessori Method nurtures and strengthens all kinds of intelligences and learning styles:

On a daily basis, Angus Glen Montessori School Students will engage with our core program of a Montessori-based curriculum combined with Gardener’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence. Combining these two learning approaches assists our teachers to work with the strengths and weaknesses of each child and by so doing, to help the child reach their full potential. In this approach we distinguish our program from traditional Montessori /Daycare-only offerings.
