Rainbow Montessori Preschool Pretoria


At Rainbow Montessori, your child comes first

Rainbow Montessori provides a dynamic environment in which to build an academic and cultural foundation, while adhering to Montessori principles.

Rainbow Montessori offers tuition in English and in French (our teachers are either French or English mother tongue).

We structure our curriculum according to your child's individual needs and pace. At Rainbow Montessori, your child comes first.

Montessori is the active personal pursuit of many different experiences, physical, social, emotional and cognitive.

Rainbow Montessori succeeds by offering a full spectrum of educational and self-development tracks, including:

Rainbow Montessori - sensorial activities
  • Practical Life
  • Sensorial
  • Language
  • Mathematics
  • Culture
  • Geography
  • Nature
  • History
  • Music

Rainbow Montessori also offers extra mural activities:

  • Kindermusik
  • Pottery
  • Dance Mouse
  • Kindergym
  • Playball
  • Soccersize
  • Swimming

At Rainbow Montessori, every child is afforded opportunities in each track. Tracks are tailored to your child's level and your child proceeds at his or her own pace. Your child will learn self-discipline and self sufficiency, building strong self confidence.

At Rainbow Montessori the child teacher ratio is 10 to 1.

Rainbow Montessori has multi-age classrooms where children at various stages of development learn from and with each other. A programme is designed to fit each child instead of making each child fit the programme.
