Special Programs

The fun and friendship doesn’t end at Peaceful Rooms Montessori Centre with Children’s House and Montessori Playgroup. We’re excited to be offering special programs throughout the term.

For Term 1 we are so excited to continue our partnership with Henriette from Maniacs Learn Through Play for Friday Earth STEAM workshops. Maniacs STEAM workshops are aligned with the current Western Australia Early Years Learning and Development Framework and Western Australia curriculum and based on a developmental approach suited to young children.

Fridays during Term 1 from 10 am – 12 pm for children ages 3-8 years.

Children learn best through play. Our workshops are FUN, Interactive and allow free play time to let children explore and discover. Earth and space STEAM Learn more about the wonderful world we live in. Join us for the Earth STEAM series.

Parents can take advantage of drop off & pick up for these sessions, however due to staffing, if their child/ren are not independently able to cut, glue, follow simple instructions; parents will need to remain on premises to support their child through the activities.
