The Earth School is a Montessori school that has been serving children since 2009. It is a space where each child is nurtured with equal measure of head and heart; where children as natural learners are honoured, and where community is the driving force that helps the individual reach their potential. Working in a non-competitive atmosphere, based on courtesy and respect, children gain an understanding of themselves and develop sensitivity to others. Teachers at The Earth School are facilitators rather than instructors, who seek to ‘follow the child’. Based on observations and reflection, the teacher provides guidance to the developing child.
