PLAYGROUP (2+ TO 3+ PROGRAMME)
The Playgroup is a child’s first school experience. Children who attend Playgroup are better prepared for a preschool programme
During Playgroup, children are encouraged to develop and grow through play. They interact, learn games, participate in arts and crafts, sing nursery rhymes with music and are introduced to exercises in practical life. Parents are required to actively participate to assure the success of the programme.
RECEPTION (3+ TO 4+ PROGRAMME)
The Reception class curriculum adopts the classical Montessori method of education in combination with ‘project-based learning’. This approach is flexible, dynamic and aims to ensure maximum development of the child.
The Reception curriculum is organised into six areas of learning:
personal, social and emotional development
communication, language and literacy
knowledge and understanding of the world
PREPARATORY (4+ TO 5+ PROGRAMME)
In the year before primary school, each child gets involved in working with hands on material that stimulates all senses. Exercises are carefully sequenced so that each activity has an orderly and logical process to follow. Children are helped to organize their thinking and problem solving skills. Elements of literacy are developed to have an easy transition to senior classes.
