Our goal at High Hopes is to support the learning, care and development of each individual child by providing a balanced and inclusive approach to the child’s overall well-being. Our mission is to provide a complete emergent and inquiry-based Montessori program which considers the emotional, intellectual, physical, and social development of the total child.
We aim to promote a safe, developmentally appropriate environment which respects supports and celebrates every child’s individual needs cultures and differences. Diversity, equality and Inclusion is central to our practise and care. We offer a safe, healthy and happy environment in which children are encouraged to develop a range of skills in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. To achieve this, we work in partnership with parents, outside agencies, volunteers and the children as part of a multidisciplinary team.
