Montessori Stepping Stones (MSS) was founded in 2007 by a group of people, with varying backgrounds and a devoted interest in creating a "children's centre" that incorporates quality care and early childhood education. Dr Maria Montessori’s philosophy and educational method play a fundamental role in the strategies and operation of Montessori Stepping Stones Child Care & Education Centre. At Montessori Stepping Stones the staff/caregivers are called educarers to demonstrate the integrated role of the caregiver and the educator.
Montessori Stepping Stones is committed to the provision of quality education and care for 6 month young infants to school age children. We believe that children learn best when they are given the opportunity to explore and interact with an environment in a constructive way at their own pace. Consequently our programs are designed to provide the maximum opportunity to experience a variety of materials, ideas and social situations at a level appropriate to the individual child. We provide a stable physical environment that encourages the child to develop self confidence and communication skills. Rather than separating children by age, we provide an environment more akin to society where all ages interact. Through our comprehensive and sensitive approach to developing the individual, Montessori Stepping Stones aims to provide an appropriate education that enables our students to successfully approach challenges that lie ahead.
