Discover the opportunity and possibilities for your child to love learning and excel.
Rowntree Montessori Schools provide a proven diverse academic programme, which engages children in academic awareness. The children develop their knowledge at an early age as they begin to acquire strong foundations of social, emotional, physical and oral development.
While children still have the opportunity to learn through structured play, they are introduced to a variety of learning experiences at younger ages in smaller class sizes.
In our programme, our teachers begin to build a strong foundation of oral language with our pre-school aged children and we continue to expand upon their development of reading and writing. Often by the age of 6, most children are able to independently read books with easy text, paragraphs and chapter books. The introduction of printing skills and tracing sand paper cursive letters also starts before the age of three, both of which form the basis to begin cursive writing by age 7.
Most children by the age of three begin to establish a sound base of the French language, through songs, games and a hands-on approach and by the age of 6 they are beginning to communicate and understand the French language.
Starting with our youngest students, Math is introduced through concrete learning experiences, starting with simple Montessori apparatus and throughout the years the children build upon their prior knowledge. At the age of 6, children often have an understanding of place value and number representation. Children are also often able to work independently with regrouping as well as adding and subtracting double-digit math problems.
Social Studies are introduced by the age of three. Children begin to understand their relationship to the world in which they live. Often children are able to label the continents and provinces on a map and they can identify where they live on a globe. We foster the connection that they make to the world, as they begin to understand their sense of self. They become knowledgeable of the diverse communities and as such, learn the value of an inclusive society.
With a curriculum that is reviewed and updated on a regular basis to provide a solid foundation, children are encouraged and challenged to work to their full potential at RMS; this is one of the first steps in the continuum of lifelong learning.
