The teacher to student ratio is 1:7. Each child receives personal attention while participating in activities.
We follow the Montessori philosophy in the classroom, and the environment has been prepared to meet the interests, abilities and development skills of the children in the class.
A child in his earliest years, when he is only two or a little more, is capable of tremendous achievements simply through his unconscious power of absorption, though he is himself still immobile. After the age of three he is able to acquire a great number of concepts through his own efforts in exploring his surroundings. In this period he lays hold of things through his own activity and assimilates them into his mind. [Maria Montessori]
The “prepared environment” is Maria Montessori’s concept that the environment can be designed to facilitate maximum independent learning and exploration by the child. It promotes the benefits of early childhood education that is our focus and makes us the best child care facility in the area.
Students are introduced to Montessori materials which include practical life, sensorial, math, language, cultural, geography, science, crafts, music and much more. The activities change as the developmental-level of the child changes.
*We provide morning and afternoon snacks, and for the full day program, we provide a hot lunch.
