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.

  • 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.
