Multi-age Classes

multi-age-classroomsThe Montessori classroom is not merely a place for individual learning. It is a vibrant community of children, where the child learns to interact socially in a variety of ways.

The three-year age range enables older children to analyse what they have learnt as they teach the younger child, while the younger children are inspired to more advanced work through observing the older ones. With such a variety of levels in the classroom, each child can work at his or her own pace, unhindered by competition and encouraged by co-operation.

The Montessori Method is organised in three yearly cycles.

Cycle 1 – for children aged 3 – 6 years (Mainstream education – Kinder, Prep)

Cycle 2 – for children aged 6 – 9 years (Mainstream education – grades 1, 2, 3)

Cycle 3 – for children aged 9 – 12 years (Mainstream education – grades 4, 5, 6).
