About Precious Cargo Education
Precious Cargo Montessori Child Care and Early Learning Centres have been operating since 2006 and have become a household name in South Australia; renowned for their beautiful, purpose-built centres, richly resourced environments and high quality educational programs and care.
The founder, Cheryl Shigrov, began teaching in early education over 20 years ago when she had two young sons and fell in love with the Montessori Method. Her passion for realising the potential in children led to the wonderful milestone; the creation and opening of “Precious Cargo”.
Today the company is thriving with 8 centres in South Australia and 1 in Melbourne. Precious Cargo centres are bright and well maintained with devoted staff who enthusiastically implement the company vision of “realise the potential in each and every child by passionately delivering high quality Montessori early education and care”.
Cheryl continues to lead the company with the same passion and hands-on approach as she now has four children, her youngest born in 2018.
Whilst each centre has a level of uniqueness, you can be reassured that the quality educational program and environment are consistent in all of the centres as well as the services offered such as music & movement classes, cooking lessons in the children’s kitchen, and the amazing food the chef offers the children daily which includes dinner. They are the only centre/company that offers dinner!
Precious Cargo St. Peters
At Precious Cargo St. Peters we pride ourselves in offering a child-centred educational curriculum based on the Montessori approach.
Educators foster each child's natural curiosity for learning through observations and careful planning of the environment. Everyday life skills are developed through a range of practical life experiences designed to promote independence. Grace and courtesy lessons are embedded in our daily practices with a strong focus on manners. Music and movement lessons are offered in our very own music room. Neighbourhood walks to the local reserve is a highlight and much loved by our nursery children.
