Family run centre

We are a small family run centre with qualified educators and we believe that children learn from birth. They learn through choosing, trying and doing themselves.

Offering specially developed materials in a prepared environment with close observation and guidance from educators helps children to build confidence and work towards the five outcomes of learning in the Early Years Learning Framework.

My Family Lounge Parent Portal

We are very excited to inform you that Woodcroft Montessori uses a fantastic online documentation program called QKeYLM, which most importantly gives you access to view your child’s documentation and pictures through a parent portal called My Family Lounge.

You’ll be able to view your child’s observations that link to the National Quality Framework learning outcomes and the Montessori Learning Program.

You are able to log in anywhere, anytime as long as you have access to the internet and downloaded the app.

Parent involvement is extremely important to us and we are thrilled to be able to provide you with this accessibility to your valuable child’s information.

For a better understanding of how My Family Lounge works, please view the video.

Montessori Method

The Montessori Method of education harnesses the child’s natural ability to learn, using a proven scientific method that offers concrete experiences and materials to abstract principals.

It focuses on six areas of learning: Practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, culture and creative arts.

The curriculum aims to support all aspects of the child’s personal and social development within a structured environment. It also emphasises on giving the child the opportunity to progress at their own pace.

Maria Montessori the founder of the Montessori method of education started her first classroom in 1907. She stressed the importance of respecting children and quoted “Children are born with an inner guide and desire to learn. If development is supported by an appropriate learning environment, this love of learning continues.”
