The school has six main sections:
- Infant Group
- Primary (key stage 1 and 2)
- Extended care
infant (daycare & toddlers)
Age Range: 0– 12 months
Children activities within this group is structured according to the Montessori 0-1 curriculum which gives the infant freedom to safely explore and learn through discovery. Respect for the independence and character of the child is the main aim of this class community. In this section we have our:
- Baby room which is designed to aid the child’s developmental needs and all the staff members in this section are qualified to provide the needed stimulus for growth. Your child will be provided with experiences relevant to their age or stage of development. At this stage, we aid and encourage physical, intellectual, social and emotional growth.
Our floor toys, activity mats, books, holistic baskets and construction boxes will help your child develop fine and gross motor control, whilst group activities such as painting, water play and play dough will aid in promoting confidence and self-awareness.
Age Range: 12-18 Months
Routines and Activities
The routine in the Toddlers’ Room is a little more structured. Appropriate activities are introduced to your child aiding all areas of development and in particular their intrinsic sense for independence and exploration. This is provided through short structured play programmes.
Arts, crafts, music, books, puzzles, tabletop toys, construction boxes, home play, water play and sand play are just some of the activities on offer. Regular outdoor activities take place in our secure astro turf play garden, under the watchful eyes of guides (weather permitting).
As they emerge from babyhood, toddlers require both a stimulating and nourishing environment to develop their mental skills. They are introduced to toilet training and advance motor skill. Their fine motor skills continue to develop and they enjoy making marks and using a variety of materials.
Looking at picture books, labelling, sorting, and ordering, listening to stories and “conversation time” make language learning fun. These are all important steps in literacy. Self-help and independence soon emerge if adults support and encourage children in areas such as eating, dressing and toileting, etc.
Age Range: 18 – 36 months
The Montessori curriculum, techniques and materials in our stable satisfy the natural tendency for this age group. Independence, coordination, order, self-discipline and concentration are more developed at this stage.
In this phase, children’s language is developing rapidly and they are beginning to put their thoughts together and learning how to communicate. Joining in conversations with children is an important way for children to learn new things and to begin to think about past, present and future. Early number and language skills (e.g. Phonics) will be introduced in a fun and engaging way at this stage.
Developing physically, the children can now walk, climb, run, and join in active play with other children. This is an important time for learning about dangers and safe limits.
Age Range: 3 – 5 years
Here, the children continue to learn and develop their skills through a more structured work time. The main areas of learning are:
- Practical life
Children also continue to expand their social skills as they play together and make lasting friendships which fosters self-confidence, independence and self-esteem.
The class is arranged according to the learning areas. As a continuation of the early learning experience from the preschool classroom, children of this age group are able to work with more complex exercises/activities. The activities are mainly hands-on, fun and concrete at this stage and this sets the basis for later development in abstract concepts. Early mathematical skill, word building skill and early writing skill are taught here. The foundation is also laid at this stage for good work and proper social habits.
