By Zonkie Montessori is dit vir ons belangrik om kinders lus te maak om meer te weet – as hulle in verwondering staan oor wat hulle rondom hulle in die skepping opmerk, het ons in ons doel geslaag!
Ons besef dat ‘n mens nie net vir n kind se kop nie, maar ook vir sy hartjie skoolhou. Ons observeer en help elke kind om sy beste te lewer gegewe sy spesifieke omstandighede.
Ons glo dat daar n balans moet wees tussen werk en speel.
‘n Kind leer net soveel deur te speel as deur te werk: dit is juis in spel waar mens leer wanneer om jammer te sê en dat dit die beste is om handjies te vat en saam te staan!
At Zonkie Montessori it is important to us to lead children to be aware of wonder – if they marvel at the world around them, then we have succeeded!
We also know that one teaches a person’s heart and not his head...we observe the child and help him perform his best in his particular set of circumstances.
We believe that there must be a balance between working with the materials and playing. A child learns as much from playing as from working: this is where you learn to say you’re sorry and that it is best to hold hands and stick together!
