Philosophy / Mission Statement:
White Swan Montessori Education Centre is dedicated to the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social development of children. Our goal is for children to develop their sense of respect toward themselves, others, and the environment. We believe that a loving, stimulating, and safe environment is necessary for children to develop to their maximum potentials as unique individuals. We believe that parents and teachers play an important role in establishing this environment by working as a team. We believe children learn through manipulating, questioning, discriminating, examining, and exploring the world around them on their own. This way they are able to fully enjoy the act of learning. In our program we provide children with a variety of age-appropriate activities and learning experiences, structured to enhance their development. We also believe in a balanced curriculum: we combine academic learning with physical activities. We believe this is important in order for the child to develop to his or her maximum potential.

Our program combines the distinguished Montessori method with contemporary psychological, educational, and social knowledge. Blending Early Childhood Education with the Montessori method has proven to be both challenging and successful.

As professional early childhood educators, we strive in all our professional activities for the highest degree of honesty, integrity, dependability, diligence, competence, respect, confidentiality, and responsibility towards each child, each parent/guardian, each colleague, and the public.
