Reception

I can do it on my own

DSC_8381The Reception or Kindergarten class is an extension of the Pre-Primary class focusing on specific age group of 5 and 6 year olds and serves as the transitory level between the Pre-Primary and Elementary sections.

 

These children will continue the final year of the Montessori Curriculum, working with the more advanced Montessori material while slowly being introduced to the traditional learning environment.

 

Even then, the Centre will incorporate basic Montessori principles into the traditional Early Childhood way of educating children.

Curriculum

In this class the curriculum is specifically designed to reinforce on the important foundation that would have been set in the years of the child’s Pre-Primary educational life. It is also designed to prepare and introduce the child to the higher Elementary level of education.

 

The focus in the Reception Class is reading, but the curriculum covers all other areas to include:

  • Language Arts (phonics, writing, spelling, listening and speaking)
  • Mathematics
  • Health and family Life
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • Music
  • French
  • Information Technology

Swimming, tennis, dance, physical education and field trips are offered with some as extra curricular activities.
