Each Cycle 1 classroom is a happy mix of kindergarten and Prep-aged children from 3 – 6 years and every classroom is spacious, airy and naturally lit. There is a sense of calm and order as the children engage enthusiastically in a huge range of activities.
The classroom is purposefully designed to allow children to be self-sufficient and to work at their own pace with developmentally appropriate activities and resources they have chosen, guided by two Montessori trained educators. They lead the highly methodical teaching of activities from real-life cooking and gardening to division and multiplication. The children learn mathematics, language, science, geography, history, sensorial and practical life lessons. Specialist teachers also introduce Italian, Performing Arts and Sport.
