We at the Children's Workshop are committed to the Montessori Philosophy, the well-being of all our families and to providing the highest possible quality education; meeting the individual needs of our children at the school
The child’s need to learn by exploring is supported by the following:
The classrooms consist of carefully prepared and sequenced teaching materials and equipment.
The teachers (directresses) guide the child’s energy, interest and enthusiasm into self-enriching channels over a three-year period
Everything in the classroom is child-sized and intended for the child’s use.
The children “work” because it is exciting to learn from the wide range of activities presented.
The children learn to appreciate and care for their classrooms and the beautifully crafted Montessori materials.
The directresses help each child individually by demonstrating the special materials.
Individual capabilities and the interests of each child are respected as each student develops at their own rate.
The assistants in the Montessori environment are teachers in training or have just qualified and are gaining experience in the environment.
We as a staff encourage the total development of each child by modeling an intrinsic love and respect for all life.
The Children’s Workshop was founded in 1980. It was the first Montessori School in Cape Town. The Children’s Campaign Trust purchased it 3 years ago.
The objective of this trust is to operate as a business for profit and this profit is then distributed to “children at risk” projects in and around Cape Town.
Our school offers nursery, pre-school and primary facilities.
