Our Pre-Primary Program offers Montessori education to children in a mixed-age community that fosters peer mentoring. The children are introduced to life skills that help them develop concentration, instill a sense of personal and community responsibility, thus enabling them to eventually become independent. The preschool is an attractive and carefully planned environment, geared to the size, pace and developmental needs of children. There are the practical life activities, a reading corner, and a wealth of sensorial materials intended for exploration of sounds, shapes, contrasts and textures.
The language corner offers materials for preparing the hand for writing while at the same time associating the symbols and sounds of the letters. Children work individually, in pairs and in whole class activities for stories, songs or gross motor activities. The teachers function as mentors, knowing exactly the level of each specific child and helping them advance at their own level and pace. Activities are set up in such a way that children can actively be involved with other children and become responsible for their own actions.
