MOBILE

Mobile language classes, from Mommy-And-Me all the way up to adult beginning and advanced levels, throughout our community.

Pre-Primary Program

Supports a holistic development of self esteem and a sense of autonomy, independence, and self-control. The program is designed around the basic Montessori concept of “let me do it by myself” and “freedom within limits”. The program also fully supports “sensory process” which is conductive to the joy of learning, emotional growth, concentration, and cognitive preparation for future intellectual academic endeavors.

Primary Program

Supports strong social skills, inquiry, discovery, independence, and a sense of responsibility. Emphasis is put on language, literacy, creative expression. Students will continue being challenged with their reading, math, and writing. Science, geography, and language continue being an integral part of the curriculum. Students further developed fine and gross motor skills allow more art projects as well as movement activities such as yoga.

Elementary School

Elementary-September 2018

We will open our doors to first and second grade students in September 2018. Our mission has always focused on providing world class education to children of all socio-economic backgrounds. The combination of our inclusive (rather than elitist) admissions policy with our internationally oriented curriculum is an ideal framework for achieving all-round excellence.
