Montessori Curriculum is especially designed to allow children to work with hands on concrete materials which happen to be the natural tendency in all children. The curriculum is integrated with both local and Montessori system. Which means the children still have the freedom of movement and exploring during their learning with Montessori Elementary Activities. By the end of the Montessori curriculum, children are prepared to go to all the systems available in the country.

We started Primary in September 2018 and now we have Grade 1 & Grade 2 and will keep on adding up to Grade 6. The classes have small number of students, whereby they get equal opportunities and attention. The grounds are spacious for children to play, there’s a different playground for the kindergarten children and for the elder children. “your child is unique, so is our approach”
Play being the most important part of a child’s development. Our outdoor environment had different play ground equipments to develop large body movement and cognitive skills. P.E. is part of the curriculum. Other outdoor activities include Swimming, Monkeynastix and Roller skating.
Field Trips to different places are organized for all the classes during the term.
Children graduate twice in a year, in July and November. Some go to British system or American system while others go to the National Schools.
