Children’s Montessori Workshop is situated in the residential suburb of Claremont, Cape Town, between Belvedere and Selous Roads.
Children’s Montessori Workshop is a co-educational Nursery, Pre & Primary School, embracing the Montessori system of education.
We believe: In the development of the whole child. That each child is unique and special. That our staff, with parents and the community, provided our learners with a secure foundation for life-long learning. That through our caring and supporting environment, we foster positive values. That through our innovative curricula we help all children to develop to their full potential.
We have small classes with a low adult to child ratio. We, as a staff, encourage the total development of each child by modelling an intrinsic love and respect for all life.
Our school consists of: 2 Nursery class (12months-3years), 5 Preschool classes including Grade R (3-6years) and 1 Primary class (6-9years).
The ratio of adult to child varies between the age groups. The Nursery classes have a ratio of 1 to 7. The Preschool classes have a ratio of 1 to 12. The Primary classes have a ratio of 1 to 15.
HISTORY: The Children’s Workshop was founded in 1980. It was the first Montessori School in Cape Town. The Children’s Campaign Trust purchased it in 2009.
