Little Earth Montessori Preschool

Little Earth Montessori Preschool is a green school environmentally and sustainably designed and built.

The preschool follows a programme based on the Montessori philosophy of holistic development creating independent learners.

As an enviro preschool, Little Earth Montessori aims to operate in harmony with the natural environment.  It is built predominantly of wood in conjunction with other natural materials and finishes such as rammed earth, linoleum and sandstone flooring, wool insulation and wool acoustic paneling.

From the early concept stage a decision was made to maximize the use of wood as a fundamental element of the sustainable design of this building.
