Hi, my name is Dani and I have been in the industry since 2016.
I started as an assistant, here at Indigo Mt Hawthorn and it didn't take long for me to fall in love with the centre, families and the Montessori approach.
Driven by my desire to learn and to teach, I completed my Diploma in Early Childcare and Education followed by a Diploma in Montessori.
Early Education is fundamental for a child's future learning. I believe children learn best in a safe and secure environment, where they are free to explore, observe and experiment with engaging experiences.
Our centre has two rooms:
The Pre-Montessori room which caters for ages from 18months to 3 years of age.
The Children’s House room which caters for children from the ages of 3-5 years of age.
Our outdoor area wraps around the back of our building and provides a large natural play space for both age groups.
We like to mix the age groups together outside as we believe that children can scaffold their learning from each other. It is also a great way for siblings from both rooms to spend some time together during the day.
Outside you will also find our centre pets. Our Chickens are apart of the Montessori family and the children love to run alongside them in our garden, take care of them and collect their eggs. Sustainability and respect for our environment is a big part of our center’s beliefs.
The idea of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycling” can be seen throughout our centre and our daily routines.
Our very own greenhouse outside is a great way to teach the children about agriculture, growth, foods, healthy living, fitness and nutrition.
We have our own centre cook onsite, who provide us with healthy, nutritional meals. Our menu is additive and preservative aware, and we can also cater to specific dietary requirements.
