Our Curriculum


Our curriculum takes into account key perspectives of Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Montessori education is characterized by an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child’s natural psychological development. The Reggio Emilia approach, developed by Loris Malaguzzi, is a program based on the principles of respect, responsibility, and community through exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment. 

Areas Of Learning


Classroom materials are grouped in similar areas of learning and lead the children from initial concrete concepts to later abstract learning. Children learn through the "hands-on" approach: 
  • Through practical life exercises children learn to care for themselves, one another and their environment. 
  • Sensorial activities provide specific opportunities to explore, order, broaden, and refine sensory perceptions. 
  • Language exercises nourish the children's vocabulary, enhance self-expression, and develop reading, writing, and listening skills. 
  • Math and manipulative materials allow exciting concrete experience with number concepts and operations.
  • Cultural subjects including science, art and music deepen the children's awareness of the world around them. 
  • Gross motor activities reinforce spatial and body awareness and strengthen control of large muscles, and eye-to-hand coordination. Indoor and outdoor activities are part of the program.
