Academic Program


We offer a developmentally appropriate program for your child within an international context in which children are encouraged to work in collaborative ways as a means of deepening their inquiry and understandings about the world.

Pre-school: Creche & Nursery

Our Pre-School fosters many of the strategies that are used in international schools across the world. In particular those relating to the importance of relationships between children, staff and families; the development of an aesthetic environment in which children are active participants and the use of documentation as a means of communicating the learning processes taking place to all involved in the pre-school – children, parents, teachers and volunteers.

The program designed for students aged 0-5 years, is based on providing the child with a large variety of activity and experiences to support the growth and learning, consistent with the theory of cognitive development, in which case, children construct knowledge from their interactions with objects and actions on the environment.

In addition, toddlers will be exposed to a language – rich environment that will facilitate their language development skills and encourage social interactions.  The target curriculum areas include: language, mathematics, sensorial, practical life, and culture. Other special activities include:

  • Manipulative, creative play in which the child can actively participate
  • Art activities (painting using various materials, gluing a variety of items on paper e.t.c.)
  • Cooking exercises with simple recipes that enable children to observe, cause and affect relationships and to see and appreciate how things are made.

Elementary

The elementary school program is designed for students aged 5 to 11 years and it focuses on the total growth of the developing child, touching hearts as well as minds and encompassing social, physical, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic development.

The program draws on research and best practice from a range of national systems with a wealth of knowledge and experience from international schools to create a relevant, engaging, challenging and significant educational framework for all children.

The Brooks Montessori School prides itself on its close knit family atmosphere. Because of our small class sizes, teachers are also members of this extended family. Teachers at BMS are committed to educating not just the minds of our students but their hearts and are therefore an integral part of their pastoral care.
