Welcome to our school! We are a Montessori Connect Children's Workshop situated in the beautiful area of Claremont, Cape Town. Our school was founded in 1980 and was the first Montessori School in Cape Town. The Children’s Campaign Trust purchased the Children’s Workshop in 2009 and have owned it ever since. We offer a co-educational environment and fully endorse and embrace the Montessori system of education.
What we believe:
We firmly believe in full development of the whole child and that each and every young soul is both special and unique. Our qualified staff provide the children with a secure foundation for learning so that they may enter big school with confidence. Our environment is both caring and supportive and we encourage positivity for our children. We ensure small classes to that the teacher to pupil ration is kept to a minimum. We encourage the total development of all children in a loving environment which advocates respect for life.
Our Children’s Workshop consists of 2 nursery school classes for children aged from 12 months to 3 years of age, 4 preschool classes including a grade R class and 2 primary school classes for kids between 6-9 and 9-12 years of age.
The teacher to child ration varies between the classes. The nursery school classes have a ratio of 1 to 7, the preschool a ratio of 1-12 and the primary school 1-15.
