It’s All About Us
Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you make in their educational journey. Qualified, early childhood education teachers provide a safe, stimulating and supportive environment, where your child can grow socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually. Abacus International Montessori School (AIMS) aims to capture children’s natural love of learning while developing literacy and numeral skills that are essential for future learning.
The curriculum in the reception classes builds on the early learning programme. It provides fun and exciting learning opportunities that further develop important skills, knowledge and attitudes to learning. The Montessori learning method allows children to develop independence, confidence, curiosity, friendship, co-operation and resilience. The boys and girls, who enter Montessori environment from two and a half years, have their own daily routine and are taught by a team of experienced and trained Montessori staff.
They are taught the basics of responsibility which develop self-discipline and a caring attitude to others. In the Montessori, we offer a broad based curriculum paying attention to the foundation skills for reading, writing and number work. The guidelines for creative learning are followed and every child benefits from a friendly environment, where he or she receives close personal attention and a considerable amount of encouragement.
Our young pupils are fortunate in having plenty of exercises and adventure field trips. The Montessori follows a holistic development programme with a special focus on phonetics, phonogram, homophones and arithmetic. Children spend the first part of their day in their classes doing age group related activities. After a mid-morning snack break, they move into an integrated programme, where various skill development activities are set up around the Montessori environment.
“Our aim is not only to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core” – Maria Montessori
