Montessori Bethlehem – At Montessori Bethlehem we have been learning about Matariki the Maori New Year. The children have enjoyed exploring lots of different Matariki inspired art and craft activities. Some of the activities over the month included weaving paper stars and sewing around star shapes. At Montessori Bethlehem we recognise the importance of providing children with a range of different experiences that allow them to find what truly captures their interest, then to explore this til’ their hearts content. Children are given the time and support they need to spend long periods of uninterrupted time working with chosen materials and activities. The children develop a true love for learning and a curiosity to explore their world further. Our children were so proud of their beautiful art creations and enjoyed sharing these with their family and friends.
