Shaken Oak Montessori
An Education For Life
 
 

Welcome to Shaken Oak Montessori

Shaken Oak Montessori was established in 2006. We follow the principles of Dr Maria Montessori, providing a specially  prepared environment where children learn and develop through investigation and discovery, with guidance from skilled teachers.

Our classroom is richly resourced with the unique Montessori learning materials, each one designed to help the child on the path to developing his or her potential. Children develop independence, respect for themselves and others, responsibility and a deep love of learning - qualities that will last a lifetime.

The garden is full of opportunities for children to learn about the natural world, including taking care of animals and plants. Exploring the outdoor environment inspires children’s innate curiosity and sense of wonder, resulting in an appreciation and respect for the natural world.


 


In the words of Maria Montessori:

“The first duty of an education is to stir up life, but leave it free to develop.”


“Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world”


“Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life.”


“If what we really want is a better world, then education must take as its aim the development of the child.”
