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.
