The Montessori Center School Pre-Primary Program offers:

  • A safe, caring environment that encourages intellectual, social, physical, creative and moral development, preparing very young children (18 months through 3 years) for academic excellence and confident life-long learning and responsible lives.
  • A teaching philosophy which recognizes that children are naturally curious and wish to experiment, explore and make sense of the world around them.
  • The opportunity for children to work together to develop self confidence in a tender atmosphere of special understanding, support and respect of individual differences.

How are our classrooms organized?

We have two classes (White Door and Gold Door) of pre-primary children aged 18 months to three years in each class. Every class has a head teacher and two support teachers.
