Programs



Primary Program
3 years – 6 years

 

Children in our Primary Class are introduced to all aspects of the world. They explore Practical life activities, Sensorial, Math, Language, History, Geography, Biology, Music & Art. Please see the Curriculum section on our website for more information on the above mentioned areas.
In our classroom, children are free to follow their own interests with the guidance of the Montessori directress. By working with the materials, children develop self- confidence, initiative and concentration.

 

Traditional Montessori classrooms bring children together in multi-age groupings, usually spanning three age levels (3yrs – 6yrs). Children stay with their teacher for three years. This allows teachers to develop close and long-term relationships with their students and encourages a strong sense of community. In the mixed-age classroom, the five and six year olds are the classroom leaders and act as role models. The younger children have the opportunity to learn by observing and emulating their older peers. The older children gain confidence by sharing their experiences with the younger three and four year olds. This interaction fosters independent learning and creates a stimulating classroom atmosphere.



Toddler Program
18 months - 3 years


 

The Toddler Program is designed specifically to meet the needs, natural curiosity and interests of children from eighteen months to three years. We offer a stimulating learning environment where the toddlers are gently guided and supported in a manner that promotes cognitive and gross motor development, the development of the senses, and eye-hand co–ordination while enhancing their innate sense of independence, order and love of learning.

 

Toddlers are also given the opportunity to explore language, music, movement, art & practical life activities that meet their individual developmental needs.



Young Toddler Program
12 months – 18 months


 


Children are accepted into the Young Toddler Program when they start walking. The young toddler program mirrors the toddler program but is tailored to meet the developmental needs of the younger age group.

*Please note that the age ranges of the above listed programs are approximate. Placement in each program depends on each child’s abilities and emotional growth.
