“ "It is not the child as a physical but as a psychic being that can provide a strong impetus to the betterment of mankind."
The parents and staff of Hout Bay Montessori are very passionate about our bursary scheme. It is a fund to provide a brilliant education start for children from families who can’t afford it, from Hout Bay.
We want to contribute to a better South Africa and at the same time give our children a more representative learning community in which to build their life skills. We have three bursary children enrolled at the school, thanks to the generosity of our parent body.
We have a robust selection process, working with James House and other community organisations in Hout Bay, and a team of parents and staff engaging with passion and rigor on the topic. We ask parents at the school to contribute monthly, and give to a child, aiding her or him to reach their true potential.
A Montessori education guides our children to believe that they have the ability to change the world, their world. As parents we need to set an example for our children. So please help give a child the opportunity to develop emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually, so that he or she will have the foundation to grow and learn further, becoming someone who will play a proactive and constructive role in our world today.
