Designed as an extension of its Kindergarten Montessori programme, RMS’ new Prep-ONE (Senior Kindergarten) Programme for 5 year olds will take full advantage of the hands-on foundational learning that comes with a Montessori introduction to school, while offering the best of 21st century learning practices. This innovative full day programme will have its own independent timetable, focus and attention. The Prep-ONE programme has been designed specifically to prepare students to successfully transition from Kindergarten Montessori to Grade 1, with particular benefit for students who plan on attending Grade 1 and up at Rowntree Montessori Schools.
The Rowntree Montessori Schools Prep-ONE Programme is a unique distinctive ethos to challenge, nurture and develop the skills of 5-year-olds, to reach their full potential. It takes place in an innovative environment where students make an effective transition to the more traditional learning environments found in our Grade 1 to Grade 8 elementary programmes. In addition, the programme aims to provide the student with the needed skills and a head start for a successful completion of Grade 1. Our Prep-ONE class develops a well-rounded student who is prepared for the RMS Grade 1 programme and enhances the skills needed to gain the most success.
Rowntree offers an enriching curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant. We seek to develop a lifelong love of learning and unlock the potential in everyone. Our education is based on developing confident, free thinking individuals, and we pride ourselves on instilling our pupils with values and courtesy. By virtue of small class sizes, we are truly committed to individualized care. Supported by considerable teacher involvement, the children have significant opportunities to grow and develop at their own rate of progress. Staff members are in regular contact with every parent, keeping them updated on their child’s progress and well being.
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’ Grade 1 programme.
