About Us

Over the past 30 years, Headstart has been providing students with a rich and diverse learning environment. Knowledge, creativity and hands-on experience have always been at our core. Since 2006 our students have been graduating with NQA Accredited Diplomas. At Headstart, we continually encourage both staff and students to grow, learn and create each passing day.

What our students say:

“Headstart has been the cornerstone of my journey in education, particularly in embracing Montessori principles and teaching methods. Since graduating in 2020, I’ve carried the torch of Montessori into my role as a pre-primary teacher in a government school.

In just a short period, I’ve achieved milestones I never imagined possible. From being recognized as the ‘Best Overall Performing Teacher in Junior Primary Phase’ in 2021 to being appointed as the acting Head of Department for Junior Primary Phase in 2022, the impact of my Montessori education has been profound.

What’s even more remarkable is that these opportunities found me without seeking them out. It’s a testament to the quality of education and preparation I received at Headstart. As I embark on another term as acting Head of Department in 2024, I’m filled with gratitude for the foundation laid by my Montessori qualifications.

Looking ahead, I’m excited about the future possibilities. With the firm belief that Montessori techniques can revolutionize education, I’m determined to pursue my aspirations of climbing the ladder in the Basic Education Sector. My goal is to ensure that Montessori principles are seamlessly integrated into teaching and learning across the pre-primary classrooms.

Thank you, Headstart, for shaping not just my career, but my passion for education and commitment to empowering young minds. Here’s to the journey ahead.”
