The primary goals of this classroom are order, concentration, coordination and independence. Montessori certified teachers guide the curriculum and the development of the children. The classroom is prepared so that every activity that the child chooses they will learn something from it. Each area of the classroom – practical life, sensorial, language, math, cultural subjects, science and art – is designed to invite the child to choose focused, purposeful work.
The multi age classroom gives the opportunity for the older children to become role models and for the younger ones to learn from the older ones. This follows the Montessori Method of education which serves the needs of children at all levels, in mixed- aged groups, which is very much like the society we live in.
The children have daily circle time where they sing songs, listen to stories, poems, and demonstration of work and discuss the topics from the curriculum. The circle is provided in English and Chinese so the children can compare and learn in both languages.
