Learning programme

The Absorbent Mind

From the age of birth to six years old, children have what Montessori called ‘an absorbent mind’.  Children’s minds are like sponges which absorb knowledge from the environment around them.  Between the ages of three and six, the child is an explorer of their environment in order to learn as much as possible about the world around them.

Aims and areas of the curriculum

The Montessori preschool programme is broad and rich and designed to help children develop socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively.  There are a number of areas to the curriculum: practical life, sensory education, mathematics, writing, reading, geography, biology, science, art and music.  Children also learn about grace and courtesy.


The preschool classroom gives children the freedom to work within limits while simultaneously developing their ability for concentration and self-regulation.
