Kindergarten Program

The kindergarten program is based on extensive research on early childhood education and child development. Children learn and play in a joyful, nurturing, peaceful yet stimulating environment which is carefully prepared for their developmental stage. 

The kindergarten year comes at a time of significant cognitive and                     social/emotional development for children. Kindergarten lays the foundation

for learning and the basic skills necessary for the development of all other skills.

 

Our classrooms are purposefully prepared environments with stimulating materials.

 

Our comfortable learning environment helps to build

the confidence and self-esteem that is essential for

life-long academic and personal achievement.

 

All teaching is hands-on with specially designed Montessori materials for           Mathematics, Language, Science, Practical Life activities, Geography, Sensorial Exploration, Music and Art. 

 

The kindergarten year highlights critical thinking, composition and research

based projects. 

 

Students choose activities from the environment and work at a pace for his/her   own education and developmental growth.

 

Students are encouraged to explore, make discoveries and use their imagination.

 

The Montessori teacher’s goal is to guide and facilitate. Acting as a guide for the students involves more than certain words and particular tone. It also involves awareness, attitude, body language and actions that reflect the principles of the Montessori method.

 

If teaching is to be 

effective with young

children, it must assist them

to advance on the 

way to independence.
