Our Early Years Programme spans three years and nurtures the young child’s curiosity. Our students acquire knowledge in a caring, creative and open-minded environment with a strong emphasis on individual learning styles. The activities and experiences provided for the students are designed to capture their interest in learning, encouraging them to be creative and at the same time to satisfy their desire to explore and discover.
We combine the Inquiry Approach and Montessori philosophies of education to:
– Teach a variety of learning styles geared to meet individual needs
– Allow for learning in a social context
– Support cross-curricular teaching in order to make inter-disciplinary connections
– Learn the importance of character development
