Curriculum for all playgroups includes:

Practical Life

Implicit and explicit language learning through activities that encourage naming and conversation, as well as themed circle time activities, stories and music.


Multi-sensory exploration to facilitate whole-brain learning as children use their senses to build knowledge about the size, color, shape and texture in the world around them.

Arts & Crafts

Introduces counting and concepts of order and sequence.

Social-Emotional Skills

Socialization and group sharing, as well as turn-taking and participation in circle time.

Specially-designed to meet the learning needs of students aged 16 – 36 months, our progressive playgroup programs help prepare toddlers to attend school independently.
Students aged 2 – 3 years old develop motor skills, language, and social skills while increasing their independence and concentration. This immersive bilingual environment equips young children to attend Casa.
A mixed-age classroom for students aged 3 – 6, Casa is an environment rich in curiosity, communication, and budding skills as readers, writers, and explorers. Over the three years, Casa students develop literacy and numeracy, confidence, grace and courtesy skills, and a deep-seated interest learning.
Our students move on to both local and international primary schools from age 6 upwards. A Montessori child is prepared to transition to the next stage of their education with a solid foundation of self-awareness, collaborative learning experiences, and experiential, student-led learning.

Our Programs

Students are introduced to the Montessori environment where they learn at their own pace and develop social skills, work habits, confidence and independence. The specially-designed Montessori learning environment awakens their sense of discovery and fosters a lifelong love of learning.
