Younger children possess a remarkable ability to absorb the world that surrounds them. Maria Montessori believed that the years from birth to 6 are the most critical period for nurturing a child’s natural curiosity and for laying the foundation for all future development. The goals of our Montessori
The classrooms are prepared Montessori environments designed to encourage children to discover the world. Interest-based activities encourage children to develop a love of learning and trust in their own ability to find the answers to their questions.
Fundamental to Montessori theory is the multi-age environment. Each classroom includes children aged 2 to 6 with each one of them given the options to attend either a half day or full day session.
2 – 3 Years Old
The class is for children age two to three years. In this class we aim to give the children an enjoyable experience, encouraging and assisting them to become more independent, self-confident and social beings through a carefully structured environment.
The children are introduced to more complex everyday living activities – creatively through painting, music, dance, cooking, dressing up – as well as learning new vocabulary and language development. They are given the freedom to choose and lead in activities. This program helps students develop in the following areas: language and literacy, cognitive, physical and social-emotional.
3 – 4 Years Old
The class is for children age three to five years. In this classroom, children are introduced to more ‘formal’ yet fun activities where they work for short periods doing more involved and demanding exercises to help develop their concentration.
With a strong Montessori influence each child progresses at their own pace in a carefully prepared, child-size environment allowing physical freedom within the classroom. Daily activities include art, craft, music, drama, creative play, nature studies and weekly theme topics.
5 – 6 Years Old
It gives students a solid academic foundation in preparation for their elementary years in local or international schools.
The areas of study practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, geography, botany, zoology, and music. Mathematics and language are the foundation for the child’s academic growth and are core subjects introduced and practiced on a daily basis.
