Playgroup: Learning the Montessori Way

Chrysalis Montessori Playgroup is where it all begins for the very youngest members of our school community.​ ​


Designed for children aged 18 months to 3 year olds, it provides a calm, secure learning place to enable children to become independent, aware of others and ready to move on to further schooling.


Parents and children are exposed to the Montessori philosophy of learning in a fun and loving way. Children will do practical life activities and Montessori 'jobs' as well as craft, singing and other activities.


Jobs comprise:

  • specialized Montessori equipment

  • puzzles

  • practical life activities (eg. pouring, sorting, threading, hammering, cutting, drawing, painting)

  • other jobs which promote skills such as counting, concentration, problem-solving, fine motor co-ordination or provide sensory experiences.

Each child attends once a week and sessions are run Tuesday to Thursday from 9.30am to 11.30am. Up to 15 children are in each group and are accompanied by a parent or carer.
