Mission Statement

Little Engines’ mission is to create entertaining and enlightening learning opportunities for children by providing an environment where the children’s natural love for life and learning are encouraged, nurtured and intrinsically instilled so that the children will be lifelong learners. We seek to create a strong sense of community, both within the walls and throughout the wider community, while creating a caring and respectful environment.

With a programme adhering to the broad principles of Maria
Montessori, Little Engines aims to see every child reach their full potential through:

  • Providing a high teacher to child ratio.
  • Fostering independence.
  • Respectfully following the children’s interests.
  • Developing their phonetical awareness through exceptional linguistic resources.
  • Developing and extending their numeracy and literacy.
  • A harmonious integration of active play into the overall curriculum such that kinesthetic learning is truly valued.
  • Providing extension activities for older children.
  • Encouraging each child to extend their oral language.
