“Never help a child with a task at which they feel they can succeed.“
“Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.“
“I’ve had two of my boys through Horizons Montessori school, my elder boy who is now 11 and my little guy who is getting close to 4 now. Both have had and are having a terrific experience in the school.”
What is truly unique about Horizons is how well the children are known and understood by all the staff. Many of the teachers who were there in Ultan’s time are still familiar faces today for Fiach.
The easy access to the teaching staff and the ongoing informal and formal feedback sessions gives us great insight into how our little guy is developing and growing on a daily basis.
The Montessori way of learning has been great for our kids and has allowed them to work at their own pace always supported by the close attention of the teacher.
There is a real sense of fun and calmness in the classroom with lots of excitement around the creative activities, plays, cooking, art, dance and the “garden” is a huge hit.
Their teachers over the years have provided a truly special learning experience in those very early formative years.
