Building Futures have put in place a COVID-19 Risk Minimisation Strategy. See Current Strategy as of 16th March 2020.

Our Philosophy

Montessori is an education for life – An individualised learning program that encourages and fosters the children to develop at their own pace; in and a part of a natural and caring environment. Maria Montessori believed that from the ages of birth – 6, the children enter a plane of development known as the “Absorbent Mind”… to take in the world and all of its offerings. It is this that Building Futures Montessori offers through the specialised “Nido environment”, “Infant Community” and “Children’s House”.

A prepared environment is one of the main educators of the children. It is designed to welcome them and encourage them to interact and develop within the Montessori Pedagogy. By using concrete materials and methods, a process rather than product system is emphasised.

At Building Futures we believe, as Maria Montessori did, that the Directresses should focus on the child as a person, not on a pre-planned program. Our Montessori Directress nurtures and inspires the human potential; leading children to ask questions, think for themselves, explore, investigate and discover. (This is reflected through the individual characteristics of Safe, Smiling, Smart and Multicultural.)

The Directress actively strives to build bonds with families to share knowledge and utilise each other’s skills, thus creating a sense of belonging for both the child and the family. A part of Building Futures Montessori “community” is the inclusiveness that is embedded within it and the wider world. Our ultimate objective is to foster and facilitate children to become contributing citizens of the world.
