Recreating Education - Empowering Children for a Better World.

 

 

Empowering Children
for a Better World

What if education for children was founded in deeply
human values and a philosophy of peace?

 

Our purpose has always been to prepare children for life - as fully formed individuals and members of a global society, ready and able to participate, contribute, and lead fulfilled meaningful lives.  

In a rapidly changing world, a Montessori education develops values and character as much as it does intellectual ability.  Education of the whole person is the pathway to a better world.

 

Elements of education for a child to thrive

Sense of Self

At the core of our approach is the belief that education should provide children with a deep understanding of themselves, their individual talents and how they can contribute to the world and the society in which they live. 

Sense of Others - Connections

Learning to engage with, and learn from, others is central to future success as an adult, and the ability to shape the future and deal with it's challenges.  Interpersonal skills will be essential to forming diverse relationships, and communicating in a technologically driven world.

Society & Global Relevance

Education with a sense of purpose to their learning connects children to society and the real world.  They learn to understand how their actions affect others, and how to define their own purpose in life and become engaged citizens. Opening the mind in this way creates the opportunity to stimulate creative thinking, problem solving and a holistic view of life.

About the Lighthouse Project

A place where school integrates with community.  
Where learning is a place of discovery and purpose.

The Lighthouse Project is reshaping, redefining, rethinking what school is, and what excellence is in education; cultivating creativity, diverse talents and a global perspective.  It will combine education, families and community with a proven pedagogy.

Montessori East, through the Lighthouse Project, will establish a community campus serving children aged 0-18 years and their families.  It will include a high school, teacher training facility and community centre. 

 

 

The Lighthouse Project is an evolution of Montessori East School to provide a new approach to learning and community.  The school is built on the foundations of a proven pedagogy laid down my Dr Maria Montessori.
