The Josiah Way
Our preschool was founded on Montessori principles, which was characterised by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits, and respect for a child’s natural psychological, physical and social developmental needs.
We have since evolved our curriculum and methods in line
with modern day social expectations, children’s individuality
and their unique needs.
We call it the Josiah Way.
Atmosphere of love
Discovery of self
Only in an atmosphere of openness can a child reveal his natural self to us. With love and acceptance, our children are encouraged to question, discover, find their unique voice and go on to develop confidence and maturity.
A cosy, calm and child-sized open environment encourages easy accessibility. Our shelves, tables, chairs, toilets and wash basins are low and easily reached, helping our children to be independent in their interaction with the classroom.
Structure and order is a major aspect of the Josiah Way.
Through a predictable routine, our children quickly learn to trust their space and interact with each other positively.
Music & Arts
Drama & Dance
When our children sing, dance, appreciate music and perform, they develop a creative spirit, discipline, culture and a love of all things beautiful.
Taught to love,
share, respect & empathise
A peaceful environment is made up of gracious and loving people.
Our children are taught and shown qualities of caring, sharing, respect, patience and empathy for others.
With the support of Montessori materials and a holistic exposure to various subjects, our children become self-directed learners. They progress from simple to complex and concrete to abstract based on their readiness.
