CMS Playroom Schedule Term 4 2023
“It is interesting to notice that where life is simple and natural and where the children participate in the adult’s life, they are calm and happy. ” Dr Maria Montessori
Our tailored early education program supports your child to positively explore their movement, speech, focus, independence and confidence so they develop a love of learning and grow to their full potential.
In the first three years of life your child’s brain develops more than at any other time, setting lifelong cell connections that help determine future behaviours, attitudes and capabilities.
As the only registered Montessori school in the lower north shore, our focus is on nurturing positive interactions between your child, their teachers, and classmates during these formative years to set connections that develop empathetic, confident and curious lifelong learners.
Making the most of early learning opportunities is key to supporting your child’s development. As a parent, there are many options available to you – but not all deliver the same results. Our Montessori program differs from traditional day care methods in three key ways:
Our Playroom program prepares your child for optimum learning in pre-school and primary school. Not only will they feel at home with us, but they will also become familiar with Montessori principles and have learned vital skills including:
Our carefully designed playroom contains a number of magical spaces for children to explore and immerse themselves in educational activities and creative learning.
Our beautifully prepared environment is an intimate space that focuses on all the developmental needs of your child.
Our experienced 0-3 trained Montessori educator will support you to understand your baby’s development through the first 6 months of their life.
Discussions led by our educator during each session will focus on a range of infant development and parenting topics.
Little Explorers – Infant Program 6 to 16 months
The bright, engaging environment is designed to ignite your child’s natural curiosity, encouraging freedom of movement and uninterrupted play to build fine motor skills and develop self-confidence through achievement. You’ll spend time watching your child have fun and grow, in the company of other parents who share your passion for learning and desire to be the best parent they can be.
Toddlers – 17 to 36 months
Our toddler space is divided into 5 dedicated learning areas, each one filled with fun activities to stimulate learning and development in different areas:
We believe every interaction is a growth opportunity. At Cameragal our teachers don’t merely watch over your children, they also use hundreds of intentional activities to encourage them to explore their world and develop new skills. For example:
Parents attend sessions with their child. This helps your child feel safe, as well as allows you to observe your child’s development and replicate the activities at home.
Our school is welcoming of all backgrounds.
Parents of our school community come from a diverse range of cultural, social and religious (or non-religious) backgrounds. But they all share a belief in the importance of the Montessori approach, and a desire to give their children the best possible start in life.

The teaching approach at Cameragal Montessori is based on intense scientific observation of thousands of children over 50 years, practiced in over 22,000 schools worldwide and thoughtfully updated to reflect the needs of Australian children and NSW education standards today. Our approach is built on three cornerstones that unleash your child’s full potential:
Our accredited Montessori teachers observe and assess to optimise activities; facilitating continual improvement that leads to greater confidence, capabilities and potential
Exploring the practical, everyday aspects of life equips children with the full range of intellectual, social and emotional skills, habits and values needed for a successful, happy life
Freedom Within Limits
Encouraging children to engage in activities that interest them optimises their innate curiosity and desire to learn, accelerates their growth and further develops a lifelong love for learning
When children are free to pursue their innate desire to learn — using practical, purposeful activities that continually push the limits of their capabilities — they not only develop towards their full potential, but their achievements also help them become confident, self-assured individuals, prepared for a life of learning, success, and happiness.
Even though we develop activities to meet the educational needs of your child, we don’t consider our Playgroup program as formal education. We believe every family is special and families need solutions that will work for them. We also believe families need community. We keep our programme informal and conversational to explore practical steps to set even more positive learning habits and foundations for their future. You and your child will also be having fun and making friends!
Even though our activities are intentional, they are selected by your child, so they are never forced to do anything they don’t want in an overly structured environment. We guarantee that each day is stimulating, educational and fun.
