Nova Montessori Centre Charitable Trust announce term three opening of its Ecological-Sustainable New Facility: A Childrens House for Ages Three to Six year olds. Nova Montessori School, established in 1989 as the first primary Montessori school on the South Island, announces the completion of construction and the opening of new facilities to include children from three to six years of age. Local architect, Russel Devlin, who is known throughout the country for ecologically sensitive, sustainable building development, designed the buildings. The structures are not only designed to accommodate ecological awareness, but they are healthy environments that reduce the risks of spreading germs by using airflows that breathe. Maria Montessori, the first woman physician in Italian history, discovered that children learn according to sensitive periods in their development. Nova Montessori School applies this to teaching and learning with three to six year olds so that children can be touched by a love of learning and a predisposition to developing social and emotional well being. A Parent Information Meeting will be held on site at 53 Owles Terrace (corner of Hardy Street) from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, 29 June 2008. For further information please contact us.
