Rowntree Montessori Schools’ Kindergarten Montessori (Junior Kindergarten) programme balances child-centered and teacher directed learning with high academic and social challenges for children who are turning four years of age. The programme includes structured learning, complemented with Montessori activities and ensures a strong foundation in the areas of Arithmetic, Reading, Writing and Problem Solving. Our Montessori activities help the child through concrete manipulation.
Promoting critical thinking and self-management skills, our Kindergarten Montessori programme allows children to experience the joy of learning in an academic environment. Rowntree seeks to develop a lifelong love of learning and unlock the potential in everyone.
By virtue of small class sizes and considerable teacher involvement, the children have significant opportunities to grow and develop at their own rate of progress. Ongoing communication with parents ensures that children receive the best from both home and school. The students learn in a safe, nurturing environment.
The programme is filled with the challenge and success of learning new skills, discovering the world around us and experiencing positive social interaction. Many activities combine academic and social skills development. Your child will be prepared for the academic-based Rowntree Montessori Schools’ Prep-ONE (Senior Kindergarten) programme.
