What Makes Tipu Montessori the BEST Childcare for Your Child?
If you’re wondering whether Tipu Montessori is the right place for your child – please read on!
When it comes to choosing a Childcare Centre most parents look at two things.
How does it FEEL? & How does it FUNCTION?
When it comes to FEELING parents ask these questions:
Is it a friendly place?
Are the teachers welcoming?
Can I imagine my child feeling happy and safe here?
Do they share my values?
The truth is – the best way to get a feel for a centre is to come and visit. It doesn’t matter how flash the website is, or how qualified the teachers are. Only you can know if the FEELING is right. We recommend scheduling a visit and allowing plenty of time for your child to engage with the space and for you to observe and ask questions.
We invite you to come and see for yourself. Contact us HERE to make a time or just pop in.
The second thing to consider is FUNCTION
Practical things matter and help to ensure you have a stress-free childcare experience.
Questions that most parents consider:
Is there adequate parking?
Drop off and pick up are busy times at any school and there’s nothing worse than fighting for a park – especially when you need to get to work on time.
Tipu Montessori has its own dedicated carpark. We are also on a residential street so there is always space on the road even if our carpark is full.
Do you need to pack a lunch box or is food provided?
Food is super important - not only is it the fuel our children need to have a positive day, but young children are often very fussy as they learn to like a variety of food. At Tipu Montessori families bring their own lunchbox and each child has the responsibility of looking after it. Not only does this prepare a child for school, but you know they will eat the food as you have packed something they like!
How does the centre communicate about your child’s learning progress?
Not only are you paying for quality care of your child you are also paying for education. It is important to know what experiences your child is having. What are they enjoying and having success with? What are they struggling with?
At Tipu Montessori we have an online portfolio of experiences and learning called EDUCA. This is a private portal for parents to see a monthly update of their child’s progress. It is also a great opportunity for parents to comment and communicate with their child’s teachers.
What does the centre do to prepare your child for school?
Starting school is a big deal and it is vital that your child is ready. At school they are in a big classroom with just one teacher. They need to know how to use the toilets, look after their belongings, navigate the lunchbox, make friends and advocate for themselves. Preschool helps children cope with being in a structured classroom so they get used to sitting and listening, following instructions, being confident about letters and numbers and asking questions.
At Tipu Montessori our pre-school room prides itself on helping your child grow into a competent and confident learner. We offer opportunities to sit, listen and learn, go on field trips, writing, number and letter recognition. And science technology experiences.
