|Teaching approach of the school||
A Montessori education is unique in its profound respect for a child’s sincere desire and ability to learn, and in its recognition of his need for independence. A balanced attention to intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual development is regarded as fundamental to their progress and enjoyment in learning. Children have an innate curiosity and love of work, and of order, that can become life-long traits if encouraged appropriately. This is the role of our staff and their joy of teaching.
Following the Toddler Community, children are grouped in ages of three to six and six to nine years. This environment encourages cooperation between the children, who learn with and from one another. The emphasis is on individual achievement, however, rather than class instruction, which allows each child to excel in pursuing his or her innate intellectual gift.
