Year 1 and 2: Montessori

The main objective of the Montessori class is to provide a high quality education based on 5 key areas: practical life, sensory life, language, mathematics and culture.

Artistic activities are also included (arts and crafts, music, yoga and dance).

The learning process follows a “constructivist” or “discovery” model in which children learn the concepts of concrete work with material, and learning progresses logically from concrete to abstract.

Activities are conducted in an educational environment that is adapted to the specific learning characteristics of children and where the child is free to move within the prepared classroom environment. This allows the children to work at their own pace and thus develop their independence and autonomy in all areas of the classroom.

The teacher has a role of “guide” who observes, supports the interests and presents the activities according to the unique development of each child.
