The Children's Haven

Our Educational Model

We have taken principles from three renowned methods of early child education and blended them. Here’s a brief introduction to what we’ve taken from each and why. With all this rich history to learn from we hope to create a beautiful environment and enriching experiences that bring peace, joy and confidence to your child.

Children's curriculum

Montessori Inspired

The Montessori method emphasizes respect, freedom and independence within a structured environment which is thoughtfully and intentionally designed to support exploration and hands-on learning. We incorporate a variety of shelf materials and activities involving music and movement, art, and practical life into our daily rhythm at The New Havens. 

  • Prepared environment - We prepare the room for the child by having tools and materials they need to succeed and increase their confidence. This means adapting the space for their size, small chairs, activities visible at their height. We prepare the space so it is simple and beautiful, avoiding jarring colors and unnaturally noisy toys. 

  • Observation & attentiveness to each child - Knowing what to offer the children to engage them next requires close observation of what they enjoy, what they’re trying to master and what they may need direction in.

  • Independance & Responsibility - We want to encourage children to make discoveries with their own hands, rather than telling the child what they should discover. We respect children’s abilities by applying the motto “Help me to help myself.” 

  • Respect - We honor the classroom as the children’s space, made for them and a home away from home. We demonstrate and teach respect of others by showing that each child has their own work and the other children will not take it from them until they are finished; and in turn neither will they.
