Our Philosophy

Maria Montessori, the first woman doctor in Italy, was one of the great pioneers in the study of child development.

Her philosophy is based on the understanding that education is a process.  In order for each child to develop intellectually, socially, physically and emotionally, we provide an environment that is orderly and structured to facilitate the child to make independent choices.

Leaps and Bounds Preschool is rich with learning opportunities for every child to explore based around their own interests and at their own pace.  Social and emotional learning experiences are valued as highly intellectual learning experiences as are music and movement, messy play, painting, construction, sandpit and outdoor activities.
