The academic year runs from the beginning of September till the end of June, with the school open from Monday to Friday. The school year is broken by the Easter/Halloween and Christmas holidays.
The Montessori Day
We have a morning class from 8.45-12.15pm and our afternoon class is 12.45-3.45pm. The day does not progress along a rigid timetable, but rather each child proceeds at his or her own pace. The course of the day’s learning is self-directed by the child. The learning environment is prepared with the specially designed Montessori materials. Children may work individually or in a group with friends. Our role is to provide acheivable challenges throughout their time at the school, so that self-esteem is nurtured and they are encouraged toward further exploration and learning.
