Junior Preparatory

About Our Junior Preparatory

The Junior Preparatory School for children from 6 – 12 years has class sizes of up to 20 children with a Directress and Assistant Directress ensuring that a healthy balance between individualised attention and peer co-operation is maintained.

We offer the Montessori Curriculum, an International-based curriculum, which is in line with the CAPS curriculum, and supports the educational goals and curriculum content that is applied to support the development of infants, children and young people from birth to adulthood. Learners in the Elementary School are grouped in classes of 3-year age cycles i.e. 6-9 years, and 9-12 years. The environment we provide is designed to support the specific aspects of development and allows the children freedom of action to build themselves as individuals and social beings. Children work at their own pace in a learner centric environment. Groups are kept small and the children are encouraged and motivated to work independently whilst having the opportunity to collaborate in small groups.

The directress/teacher in the classroom plans each child’s work individually based on their specific academic needs, whilst keeping within the framework and guidelines of developmental milestones. The Montessori Curriculum, for each of our age cycles, allows the learner a period of three years to master their developmental and academic milestones. This structure gives us the benefit of having a much longer period to work with each child ensuring that they are adequately supported to achieve their respective academic goals.
