About Tara House Montessori Nursery
TARA HOUSE MONTESSORI SCHOOL
( Children 2-5 Years)
Tara House Montessori School was opened by Helena Ramsahoye in 1982.
At Tara House, all children will be treated as individuals and their potential will be recognised, valued and nurtured. The activities and use of the play equipment will offer the children opportunities to develop in an environment free from prejudice and discrimination.
The children will have opportunity to explore, acknowledge and value similarities and differences between themselves and others.
The aim of the school is to provide a specially prepared environment where the child can be free to pursue its chosen activity to its own satisfaction, not the parents'or teachers'. Children are encouraged to complete an activity and teachers only intervene to prevent abuse. 'The most important period of life is not the time of University studies, but the first one - the period from birth to the age of six. That is the time when man's intelligence itself, his greatest implement, is being formed. Not only his intelligence, the full totality of his psychic powers. The newborn is the creator of the adult personality, for we find in the newborn our own hidden nature'.
The child goes through Sensitive Periods, when temporary instincts, connected with the acquisition of certain characteristics, are present in the child. When the child is free he/she is guided by these sensitivities to objects and activities in the environment. He/she fixes his/her attention, studying with eagerness until a new stage of development is reached. No knowledge is imposed externally on the child, there are no rewards and no punishments. Discipline is based on mutual respect. Dr Montessori saw the development of the whole child as of paramount importance, with this end in mind she developed her equipment.
The education of a small child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.
There are three terms per school year, with a week's holiday half term. The hours are 9.30 - 12.30 Monday - Friday (inc) & 1.00 - 3.30/4.15 Monday - Thursday
Tara House also provides a Summer School - further details are available on request.
