About

Our Preschool

At Birkenhead Point Montessori Preschool we believe that your child is unique. We respect each child’s personality and believe in the potential of each individual. Our children and their families are central to everything we do. Our programme provides high quality early childhood education through practical and life experience, all wrapped up with a sense of well being and fun!

 

BPM operates from a beautifully converted villa nestled at Birkenhead Point. We have 5 teachers including a specialised Art Teacher and dedicated art studio. We are licenced for 30 children from 2.5 to 5 years and offer 20 ECE hours for children over 3.

 

Our Vision

Our vision as educators is to foster independent, confident and academically prepared children, who will be lifelong learners and problem solvers.  We will grow and evolve to meet the needs of our children, parents, and community.

 

Our Philosophy

Our teachers seek to guide rather than control. Learning is invited rather than imposed, encouraged rather than enforced. Our emphasis is on giving your child the opportunity to progress at their own pace, rather than driving towards rapid advance, early achievement or any other externally fixed goals. Free from tests, benchmarks and competitive pressures children tend to excel, driven by their own thirst for knowledge.

 

At BPM we encourage inclusion of all peoples no matter of race, gender, religion or abilities. We believe in imparting knowledge of grace and courtesy whereby children can learn to become peaceful, inspirational citizens of their future world – a place where they will be happy and content.
