Description

The Fields Montessori Pre-School and Playgroup in Parkmore, Sandton is situated in a large, tranquil park where the children enjoy weekly nature walks discovering the wonders of nature. These include river walks gazing at fish with ducks swimming by, playing under the shade of trees, tossing autumn leaves, observing bird life, picking dandelions and wild flowers, selecting acorns, playing in the sand with sticks, collecting pine cones, running in the forest, playing hide and seek and having open end discussions about nature and much more.
This gives children great pleasure, resulting in a sense of calmness, celebrating the beauty of nature.
It is necessary for his psychological development to place the soul of the child in contact with creation, in order that he may lay up for himself treasure from the directly educating forces of living nature.
Maria Montessori would agree with the movement to place children outdoors. She placed a great emphasis on nature and nature education.
Dr. Montessori also felt that the outdoor environment should be an extension of the classroom.
Where else can you expose your children to a park setting in the heart of the city? In our modern world of screens and traffic, time in nature is essential for your child.

“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to age six. For that is the time when man’s intelligence itself, his greatest intellect, is being formed.” – Dr M. Montessori
