Rowntree Montessori Schools’ goal is to develop a lifelong love of learning and unlock the potential in every student that walks through our doors. RMS offers an enriching curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant. 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. The students will be prepared for the academic-based Rowntree Montessori Schools Grade 1 programme.
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 8 elementary programmes. In addition, the programme will 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.
This programme includes:
Improvement of social skills, cooperation through group work
Increase of self-esteem, and development of responsibility and independence
Development of reading and writing through phonics
Development of mathematics concepts including addition and subtraction, time telling, understanding of money and measurement
Development of sportsmanship, team work, physical fitness, as well as creativity through arts, crafts and music
A richness of many opportunities to learn beyond the classroom, that provides personal challenge, teamwork and the discovery of new skills.
