In our balanced and integrated Kindergarten programme, Rowntree students benefit from the best of new and traditional methodologies. By combining the principles of Maria Montessori with both more traditional approaches as well as 21st Century teaching and learning, we can lead our students on an educational journey that we believe will prepare them for success in school and in life. This student has used available materials to creatively build 3-dimensional solids (a cube, in this case) in a lesson that has been reinforced with Montessori activities, on an interactive whiteboard, and with pencil-and-paper tasks. Our multifaceted approach is designed to engage and excite various learning styles and allows our students to achieve success across different contexts. Early STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) lessons encourage students to act as young engineers as they work to solve simple real-world problems using basic household materials. The foundation built in our Kindergarten classrooms leads seamlessly into our Elementary programme in which cross-curricular problem-solving of real-world problems is supported by a robust delivery of both traditional and 21st Century skills. Rowntree students of all ages are being nurtured and prepared today for success in tomorrow’s academic and occupational world.
