Oakwood Montessori school, we understand that the foundation of a child’s education is of utmost importance, hence our Pre-school section provides the essential foundation education to children in their early years.
The child -oriented learning programme is designed to meet every child’s specific needs and mould the young minds through fun-filled activities.
The classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art Montessori and child-friendly materials and our staff are constantly collaborating with the parents to bring out the best in every child.
The pre-school caters to children from ages 3 months to 5 years. Children are encouraged to explore, discover and gain understanding through structured play and learning activities There are five classrooms each with mixed age groups. Each has a directress, two class assistants and a nanny for toddlers.
Our teaching curriculum is based on five Montessori subject areas: language, Mathematics, sensorial, practical life exercise and cultural. Our children follow these Montessori teaching curricula starting with the practical life exercise designed to develop physical control, coordination and concentration skills,
moving through the Montessori sensorial materials which teach shapes, colours dimensions, and relative sizes. They are moved into materials that develop their ability to speak, listen, read write and number work.
Reading is taught phonetically (using jolly phonics) and many of our children are reading simple books and doing addition, and simple subtraction by the time they move into the Elementary school. We also expose them to subjects like music, French and computer. We also help them to explore and investigate through themes and country of focus
