Our curriculum combines Dr. Maria Montessori’s Montessori methodology with early years foundation stage learning
Montessori has six main areas in the classroom:

Activities of everyday living: This area compromises a range of practical life skills activities that will contribute to the children home life as well as to their future school life. This area is carefully prepared in order to help our pupils build confidence, as well as to encourage independence, nurture self-esteem, and refine their fine motor skills as well as to help them make sense of the world around them through concrete experiences.

Sensorial: On this area the children will have activities to extend their knowledge about the world. The sensorial activities give them some indirect preparation to mathematical concepts as well as an opportunity to refine their senses.

Literacy: Here the children will find a range of activities to indirectly prepare them for reading, comprehension and writing. In addition, the children will have access to resources to enrich language and vocabulary.

Mathematics: Children are born with an incorporated mathematical mind; this area will give them a rich variety of activities to fulfil their natural interest for mathematics and concepts such as order, dimensions, diameters, length, symbols and sizes.

Knowledge and understanding of the world:Here the children will be encouraged to experiment on a variety of science, geography, botany, technology projects and shelf activities. Books, pictures, puzzles, gardening, life cycles and cooking will be prepared for them to participate.

Art: This is where the children will have an opportunity to be creative, to express their art skills freely through a rich range of materials that are attractive, colourful and accessible to them.

We strongly believe that further re-enforcement of a child’s procured understanding was necessary for a child’s holistic learning. To bridge this idea, the best practices of other early years foundation learning pedagogies such as Reggio Emilia and multiple intelligence approaches are blended into the curriculum.

In order to meet our curriculum objectives, we take the children through a structured learning program for 4 years, which involves structured and earmark activities. No activity in the school is meaningless or done without clear objectives.

For the children in the age group of 1.8 to 4 years, we begin with fine motor and practical life skills. English is introduced with phonetics. Mathematics is introduced using educational aids and manipulatives that help the child comprehend this very abstract area. There are also a variety of activities that aid cognitive development and logical thinking.

For the 4 to 6 age group, children are taken through a program that covers fairly complex areas of language, mathematics, geography, history and science in a manner that will help them explore, discover and understand the fundamentals.

The curriculum provides many opportunities for children to make choices and decisions about their work. Children have the choice to work in small groups/ individually depending on their needs at different times.

During the course of working through the day, we constantly create opportunities for children to develop their language skills as well as focus on their emotional development. We encourage them to receive help from and offer help to other children, thus inculcating a sense of social awareness. Mixed age grouping also helps them become better learners.

We also lay emphasis on creating environmental awareness and help them develop practical skills like cutting, sieving and gardening. We also offer ample activities for development in the areas of art.

Physical development is not just about running around or cycling, there are a series of activities that are designed keeping in mind the age and growth of the child.
