Why Early Education?

Children until the age of six experience their most significant years of social, emotional and physical development. Whether it be taking their first step, learning how to skip or uttering their first words – children have the capability to self- learn and imitate.

This is why we urge parents to enroll their children in an educational and creative environment at this age, as their minds and bodies are ever ready to absorb knowledge.

Why Montessori?

Developed over 100 years ago, the Montessori philosophy was founded by one of Italy’s first female physicians – Maria Montessori.

Montessori is a method of learning based on self-directed activity, hands on learning and collaborative play. As your child is not a robot that needs to process information, rather your child is a curious individual capable of, with guidance, learning him or herself.

Practical Life

Practical  Life

The Montessori inspired Practical Life program aims to teach children to find purpose in everyday life activities. This program helps a child to gain control in the coordination of his movement, and help the child to gain independence and adapt to his society. This could include pouring water, cleaning a table, learning how to dress oneself and making a meal.

Sensorial Activities

Sensorial Activities

The Montessori inspired Sensorial program is designed to encourage children to explore the world through their senses. The children explore size, shape, composition, texture, loudness or softness, matching, weight, temperature, etc. In this program, the sensorial exploration is separated into eight different groups: Visual, Tactile, Baric, Thermic, Auditory, Olfactory, Gustatory, and Stereognostic.

Culture

The Montessori inspired History, Geography and Science curriculum has been designed to teach children about not just the world they live in, but of countries, societies and cities globally. They are introduced to the world map, the history of mankind and the existence of different land and water forms around the world

Language

The Montessori inspired Language program focuses on teaching and guiding children on how to communicate with the world around them. From exploring written and verbal forms of the English language, to learning both French and Arabic, our children are prepared to communicate with the world around them.

Mathematics

Mathematics

The Montessori inspired Mathematics program introduces children to the science of Mathematics, by showing them the connections between the world and math. The children indulge in basic arithmetic, geometry, concepts of time, space and structures.

Art

Art

Art is introduced in every subject the child does, from mathematics to practical life. We encourage painting, papier mache, cutting, tearing, sticking, body art, collages and even the study of real life famous artists.

Empathy & Intergenerational Learning

Empathy & Intergenerational Learning

We believe that it is the responsibility of educators to ensure that in addition to the basic teachings of education, we must mold our children to be better and more empathetic people of tomorrow. Hence in September of 2017, we will be introducing a new intergenerational learning and empathy curriculum which will include: activity trips to the local elderly center, caring for the environment, sharing with the larger community and educational classes on the world

Sports, Music & Dance

Sports, Music & Dance

In addition to daily yoga, dance and music, we have partnered with Ready Steady Go Kids, one of Australia’s leading programs to teach our children five different sports every 10 weeks. This includes baseball, football, golf and so much more.

STEM & Technology

STEM & Technology

Along with our everyday languages, in the last twenty years we have seen the importance of another language emerging. That being coding and technology. Hence, we have introduced both morning and afternoon sessions educating children on the basics of coding, engineering and technology. We will be using the KIBO BOT, developed by the MIT Media Lab.
