Four Seasons Montessori is a small and intimate preschool, established in 2013 and located within the Sundowner (Randburg) boomed area. The preschool caters for children aged 2 – 6 years old.
Four Season Montessori’s vision is to provide children with a hands-on learning experience that teaches them relevant knowledge and skills. We aim to ignite a love of learning in our students. Ultimately, we want to prepare our students, not only for school, but for life.
Children aged two to six are sensorial explorers that are constantly building their knowledge of the world by absorbing every aspect of their environment, language, and culture. Our Preschool Education Program caters to the specific needs of this age group by fulfilling their innate desire to learn through direct sensory experiences with self-teaching materials. The Program covers the five key curriculum areas, with science, music, art and physical education playing an important part in daily activities. In this age group, children choose their own tasks and work independently at their own pace, under the gentle guidance of a trained teacher. The focus of the Preschool Program is to prepare children for school and help them to develop independence, a strong sense of self, self-motivation, and a love of learning.

“We believe that the preschool child learns best within a nurturing environment that caters for their individual style of learning. During one-on-one interactions that are geared towards the child’s individual readiness and pace of learning, children will absorb what they are developmentally ready for. A child who feels safe and happy in a non-pressured environment, is one who will flourish to their full potential.”
