Montessori

We have 4 spacious classrooms.

 

Class 1: 9am – 12.30pm

Caters for children from 2 ½ to 3 years.

The teachers role is primarily one of a guide / facilitator. The child is taken through a sequence of lessons designed to create greater skills and independence.

Practical Life: Pouring, buttoning, strengthening motor skills and concentration.

Sensorial: Senses of sight, touch, sound, taste and smell.

Cultural: Exploring, maps, flags, land forms and books.

 

Class 2 and 3: 9am – 1pm

Caters for children from 3 to 4 years.

 

Class 4: 9am to 2.00pm

Caters for children from 4 years.

 

While covering the above, the children, having grown in confidence, move on to a higher level.

Subjects: Mathematics, Language, History, Geography and Science.

In all our Montessori classes, the children begin their day working with the Montessori materials, have time each day to play in our spacious playground and take part in activities such as baking, arts and crafts, culture lessons, science experiments, and gardening to name a few.

Each week, Betty (Certificate in League of Health), provides the children with a fun and energetic P.E class, in which the children participate in activities such as yoga and parachute games.

Each week Madame Roisin visits the classes to do French through music with the children on Mondays.

As an optional extra,Hilary visits the children in classes 2 to 4 every Tuesday to do Drama with them. The children put on 2 performances during the year, one at Christmas and one at the end of the year.

Throughout the year, the children take part in many special events such as:

  • Fancy dress Halloween party
  • Santa visit
  • Magician
  • St. Patricks Day parade
  • Easter egg hunt
  • School outings
  • End of year BBQ

Not to mention the option of participating in our fun camps at Halloween, February, Easter and Summer.
