“Laurena was kind enough to have Sydney age 5 enjoy her school while visiting from America's Montessori School Creative Minds... We truly loved our experience at Fridays Child preschool and can’t wait for my youngest to join the school. Sydney was truly sad to go back to America as she felt so welcomed and made friends from day one. Thank you so much see you again.” Natalie Surie

kindergarten program centre we have
• Small mixed age class – 24 children aged 2.5 to 5 with three experienced mature staff (most are parents) means lots of individual attention for your child. Your Child learns and grows at their own pace. Enough equipment to set up a 65 place centre so your child won’t get bored – there is too much to do!!! A rarity, Fridays Child has had the same owner and teacher, Laurena, for 27 years.
• Interest areas are always changing – your child will learn about science, weather, dinosaurs (always a favourite), social studies, other cultures, and geography to name a few. Plus the 3 R’s too.
• Anti bullying and behaviour modification program
means safer childcare
- your child learns to stand up for themselves and to take charge of their own safety now and in future. Your child grows self-esteem and learns how to resolve conflict without hitting. Our program prevents bullying to start with. Laurena has 31 years teaching young children - she’s a no-nonsense “child whisperer”.
We believe Montessori Education
is a precious gift which should be available to all children, everywhere. We know that given a great start, children find ways to learn which are right for them.
At Fridays Child Montessori Preschool, our unique curriculum gives children both the guidance and the freedom to construct knowledge in ways meaningful to them. Highly trained teachers and staff nurture your childs natural curiosity and wonder within a safe, homelike environment which allows them to explore and discover. Children graduate from Fridays Child Preschool empowered to be creative problem solvers, life-long learners and interesting, curious individuals who have high self esteem and are brimming with confidence.
As the poem says "... Fridays Child is Loving and Giving ..."
Let your child experience Montessori for themselves ...

Many parents visiting a Montessori early childhood centre for the first time often notice that the children there are very well behaved. They say please and thank you (part of the graciousness strand of Montessori learning), and they tidy up their equipment when they’ve finished with it (part of self-care and part of the culture of orderliness). And this is often the deciding factor for many parents – a polite child who tidies up... (more...)
