"... After working in child care myself years ago, and being a nanny - I was pretty fussy about where to send my child. I found the Friday's Child not only offers a stimulating environment, with lovely surrounds, great equipment and friendly staff - but my son comes home with the most amazing facts and stories about what wonderful things he has learnt at school. He took a while to settle in, but the staff were always there to help with his transition, no matter how long it took him - and he now enjoys going on a regular basis. I highly recommend the center for anyone that lives on the Gold Coast. This is a great place to send your kids ..."
Hand - Heart - Mind
At Fridays Child Montessori, we believe that children explore their world with their hands, their hearts, and their minds.
Our teachers recognise and interface with each child as a their own person and are skilled at guiding children to help them grow in ways that are most natural to them.
We recognise that the majority of learning at younger ages is through movement and must match each child's own pace, so our classroom activities are specially designed and introduced to optimise skill development.
We also give all children the tools they need to address conflicts, become confident leaders, and fulfil their natural desires to create connections with the people around them and the universe at large. Our bullying prevention program helps all children - those who may become bullies as well as those who may be victimised. Communication of feelings works.
The older ones also learn to look out for and help the younger ones, which fosters a sense of responsibility and sharing.
