No other education captures the sheer joy and passion for learning the way Junior’s Play House Montessori Preschool does. The kindergarten provides an authentic Montessori environment that guides each child not just in education but for life. They strive to make the first six years of children’s lives the best ones that parents could wish for. Every aspect of the school is geared towards building a strong foundation that shapes children’s future learning achievement at primary school, overall growth and development, and general health and happiness in life.

One of the key concepts is that children are driven by their own desire to learn new things and master new skills. They do not work towards grades and rarely learn from workbooks. Much of the time they have direct hands-on contact with concrete materials and real things under study. This allows children to learn with a much clearer understanding. Junior’s Play House is like an extension of the home. Teachers truly accept that children learn in many different ways and respond empathetically to their feelings. Children grow up happier and more contented with teachers who watch their journey with dedication and care.
