Our Curriculum
 
Our curriculum follows that advocated by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).

The curriculum can be divided into 5 main areas :

 
Practical Life
Also known as the Exercises of Daily Living, the activities here lay the foundation for all future learning as the child develops the essential powers of concentration through completing each task. He learns how to take care of himself and the environment, as well as to adopt appropriate social etiquette that allows him to function comfortably in all situations.
 
Sensorial
As the name implies, the apparatus in this area train and develop the senses of the child. As his senses become increasingly refined, he is able to absorb rich and detailed information from the environment. This heightened sensitivity makes the world come alive for him as he experiences the myriad shapes, colours, textures, smells, sounds, flavours and other qualities around him. The sensorial materials also aim to give him mental classifications which enable him to organize the information he takes in.
 
Language
Activities are introduced which aid in the development of linguistics and literacy. The bilingual environment grooms the children to express themselves articulately and confidently in English and Mandarin. The child is encouraged to develop a love for reading as this is an invaluable for learning and expanding his knowledge.
 
Mathematics
The mathematical materials aim to provide the child with concrete representations of concepts such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. These concrete examples eventually pave the way for the child to develop an abstract understanding of all these ideas.
 
Culture
This area corresponds to the child’s natural curiosity of the world around them. It encompasses a wide range of topics such as art, music, science and geography. It forms an introduction to the people and cultures of other places, connecting the child to the global community in which he lives.
