Our Curriculum

We offer a broad curriculum based on the Montessori Method. Montessori is an educational system that has been around for over 100 years and is based on a child’s individual and developmental needs. We are also cognizant and accommodating of current educational theories, particularly DMIC (Maths) and learning through open-ended play.

Our curriculum can be seen on the individual pages. Curriculum areas are often integrated with each other to ensure learning is taught in context and in meaningful ways. Every child is has an individual learning plan and the children’s programme will differ depending on their needs.
