Montessori - developing happy children Our Montessori programme is designed to fully prepare children for their next stage of schooling. Our pre-school aims to lead children to achieve a number of Early Learning Goals. These are grouped under six broad areas of learning: Personal, social and emotional development, Communication, language and literacy, Problem solving, reasoning and numeracy, Knowledge and understanding of the world, creative development and physical development. Our Montessori classrooms are characterised by an emphasis on order, cleanliness and harmony. Classrooms are arranged to facilitate movement from one activity area to the other. Our trained Montessori teachers encourage children in different activities, making sure that only material which supports the learning development of the child is included. So no cluttered classrooms or walls at XIMS! Our Montessori classroom materials include activities for engaging in practical skills - such as pouring and spooning; materials for the development of the senses, mathematical materials, language materials, music and art materials.

Curriculum Our curriculum is planned using the Montessori philosophy and principles guided by the statutory requirements of the Early Childhood development Digdarshan (Curriculum) -2062 Published by Department of Education. It aims to help young children achieve the five ‘Every Child Matters (ECM)’ outcomes, which are: Staying Safe; Being Healthy; Enjoying and Achieving; Making a Positive Contribution; and Achieving Economic Well Being. Young children learn best by doing and by being involved, so the Montessori possesses a wide range of manipulative equipment designed to promote effective and enjoyable learning. Social and physical development too, is not over-looked. We place emphasis on developing an ‘inquiring mind’ and ‘love of learning’ through sustained shared thinking, and set the foundations for the more academic skills in Arithmetic and Language. The school day is carefully balanced so that children have time to be active, time to play and be noisy, time to be quiet, time to listen, time to concentrate, and time to rest.
