Early Year Programme

Montessori Programme

Each child is unique and we need to recognise and hone the multiple skills of the children into individual strengths.

 

The pre-primary Montessori environment enables children to work with freedom with specific materials for specific concepts at their own pace.

 

Individual and social development is fostered in each child by a unique way where mixed age groups are in the same environment. Hence, children of age groups 3 to 6 years come together to form spontaneous and harmonious interaction.
