About Little Shack Preschool
Little Shack is a small home-based preschool in the heart of Sandton, Johannesburg. We cater for little ones from 18 months old. We follow the Montessori approach at Little Shack and our little pupils are therefore encouraged to gain independence. They learn about the world around them through sensory play and exploration. Our Christian values, small teacher child ratio, variety of child lead activity/play and a personal touch is what makes our school so unique.
A loving, peaceful, encouraging, and safe community is what Little Shack is all about.
We have designed the classroom at Little Shack preschool specifically to encourage our little ones to become more independent through child focused activities. During the work cycle each child is encouraged to choose work independently, work purposefully, pack away once completed which ultimately allows them to gain autonomy.
Children learn by engaging all 5 of their senses. Our children are encouraged to explore, manipulate, and discover through the Montessori materials that are provided for them. We also provide weekly messy play, or art and craft activities, following a theme, that are designed to introduce new concepts and foster creativity.
Music & Movement
Music and movement are a wonderful way for children to develop holistically. Music Box (music) and Tumbling Tigerz (movement) are extra mural programs that come once a week to provide additional stimulation and aid in development. We also offer these classes to stay at home children who don’t attend school.
Each and every child is fearfully and wonderfully made. We understand that children reach their developmental milestones in their own time. Therefore, our qualified teachers at Little Shack Montessori guide, encourage and celebrate with each child as they reach their milestones at their own healthy pace.
