Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Montessori

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"At Woodside, we draw on the concepts developed more than 70 years ago by Maria Montessori, Italy's first woman doctor of medicine. Her scientific observations led her to conclude that children thrive when allowed to develop at their own pace, in an environment specially equipped with a rich choice of stimulating auto-education, multi-sensory learning materials. It is an education based on respect for each child as an individual, which aims for each child's fullest possible development"
