Psychological, intellectual and social activities and demands of adolescents have changed massively over the last twenty years, but we have found that the core of the education – arguably the most important element of children’s growth other than family – is still stuck in the days of the industrial revolution.
We think that the answer was actually discovered over a hundred years ago by Maria Montessori and her educational philosophy that promotes human values over grades, cooperation over competition, and self-discovery over conformation. You’ll find that the majority of current education has them the other way around.
Harbour Montessori College is opening in Term 1, 2019. We aim to create an environment where the young adults can discover their passion that will drive their desire to learn, the feeling of contentment that will give them inner peace, and the ability to genuinely connect that will lead to contribution to their wider community and the world.
Your support will go towards the start-up and the capital to cover the first year of Harbour Montessori College in 2019, as we have already secured a premise, a teacher, and 6 enrolled students who will begin their journey with us.
Montessori education, contrary to some popular beliefs, is not some loosely-open and random-learning; it consists of structures and boundaries guided by teachers who have been intensely trained, so that the students can be free to explore and learn. We believe that there are a significant number of adolescents who can massively benefit from a school based on this philosophy. You may recall some who struggled with school back when you were young; Harbour Montessori College will change their lives.
