our philosophy


Our management team is friendly and well qualified to assist parents on a day to day basis under the leadership of a Director and Assistant Director.


To be a Montessori teacher it takes great passion for understanding the absorbent mind of a young child and dedication towards following each child, with knowledge of sensitive periods, so that the appropriate lessons are introduced at the right time.

Our team of Montessori certified lead teachers have been with us through the past years. They are dedicated to making TFM a safe and happy learning environment for all the children in our care. Our assistant teachers love their jobs and have good experience working with young children. Our team is offered many opportunities for continuing education and training.

The first 6 years of a child's life are very important in the journey to explore and learn. We believe that our school is an extension of the family and natural environment for your child - a home away from home. 

Dr Maria Montessori said, “The education of a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.”

We believe that a successful parent-teacher partnership through cooperation and respect is required for the mutual goal of  what is best for the child. In aligning ourselves with a family-centered philosophy, we strive to develop strong partnerships with families and the community.
