Our creative and nurturing environment provides children with opportunities to discover and become independent. With a strong focus on tactile and outdoor education, Venture Montessori creates a unique learning experience for children between the ages of 2 and 6.
Mary has both worked with children internationally, sporting over 20 years of experience. She has a passion for seeing the lives of young children impacted positively and making sure that that impact lasts a lifetime.
When venture started in February 2014, it was an immediate success, wholly due to the parents’ unshakeable trust in the lady at the helm of a school unlike anything seen in the South of Johannesburg before. Exclusivity ensures undivided attention for every student, which in turn cultivates a deep love for learning carried by each student throughout their lives.
A child’s mind is extremely absorbent and curiosity is at a peak during these early years. When properly nourished and stimulated, the child forms healthy patterns for a life time of learning.
There is a respect, love and co-operation among the children as they socialise and learn. Montessori is as much an attitude about education and children as it is a specific method with certain materials.
The children set their own pace to their own learning , it is not a static environment and is an ever-changing environment. Children learn by working independently with specially designed materials in a prepared environment. The child is taught how to use the materials. The classroom design is beautiful and interesting to the child in order to facilitate learning. The materials and exercises are designed to stimulate independent exploration. The prepared environment entices the child to proceed at his own pace from simple activities to more complex ones. A classroom of Montessori children is a joy to watch!
