The School has specially designed departments to meet the needs of each student category.
Management believes in the philosophy: Catch them while they are young! School management therefore recommends that all children are enrolled starting at age of 2 (Nursery School) progressing to Kindergarten, Primary School and to Junior High by the age of 14, prior to writing the BECE examination to enter Senior High School.
It is interesting to note that all Pre-school classrooms are well ventilated, specially set up to create a happy safe environment for the child to unfold his/her abilities. The room is a friendly environment with not more than 20 toddlers per class, with a teacher and one or two assistants in attendance. This enables the child interact with Montessori materials and the guide, without knowing he/she is learning. There is a unique infant library in the same building where all students may borrow library books for home reading as soon as they enter into Kindergarten or from age 3 to 4 onwards. Every aspect of learning and reading of students is monitored progressively once they commence Kindergarten.
The Pre-school department adheres to modern international Montessori modules or syllabi. The curriculum areas are:
- Cultural, Biology and Geography.
- Practical life.
- Art and Creativity.
Language: This entails all the complex series of linguistic development. The Montessori materials and approach equips the child with a great deal of language skill and experience by age 5.
- The child is expected to:
- Speak with clear diction and intonation.
- Be confident when expressing himself /herself.
- Be knowledgeable in matters of immediate interest.
- Make relevant comments and ask meaningful questions.
Mathematics: The Montessori philosophy believes that, the satisfaction of discovery leads to an enthusiastic interest in numbers. The child is allowed to physically hold materials – count, separate, compare, etc. while visually grasping and reinforcing ideas in a way that is concrete. Mathematical apparatus such as the Golden Beads, Pink Tower, Broad Stair, Long Stair, Thermic Tablets, Geometric Tablets, Number Rods etc. are always at the disposal of the child at the right time.
Sensorial: Sensorial education or training aims at helping the child to attain maximum refinement of his senses. With a wide range of Montessori apparatus, the young child is methodically exposed to stimuli that will develop his senses rationally and thus lay the foundation for his mental power.
Cultural, Biology and Geography: In these subjects the child is made to understand and experience processes and sequences involved in the natural and social environment.
They will soon know that the survival of trees, flowers, insets, and animals depends on humans caring for them. By age 5, some of the competencies the Montessori child has acquired will include observation and discovery, care and responsibility and interdependence.
Practical Life: For life to be satisfying and fulfilling the young child must be assisted to advance on the way to independence. Practical life exercises initiate the child into those kinds of activities which he can perform himself and which keeps him from being a burden to others because of his inabilities.
In this subject the child learns how to talk in the classroom, walk up and down stairs, open and close doors, wash and dry hands, pour liquids and solids, fold and unfold, thread beads, lace shoes, cut, sew, greet, care for self and many more.
By age 5 the child has developed concentration, motor skills and co-ordination, self–esteem, social awareness, social skills and above all, independence.
