Montessori Method

Montessori respects the child as different from adults, and as individuals who differ from each other. In a prepared environment, the child moves freely to select carefully planned activities appropriate for his level of development.
Teachers are constantly alert to the needs of the child and seek to nurture their curiosity and natural motivation to learn. With the Montessori programme, children gradually develop concentration, coordination, independence, confidence and grow up to be socially adjusted, positive individuals.

Montessori materials are an important part of our curriculum and have been specially and specifically designed according to strict Montessori specifications and standards.
