Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed. Maria Montessori

Please note that for our Montessori program to take full effect, you will be required to support your child by dropping them in our service no later than 9.15 a.m. This is to ensure that we provide your child with 3 hours of uninterrupted work cycle.

The Montessori method is a child-centered educational approach, established by Maria Montessori, which is rooted in scientific observation of children from birth to adulthood. The focus is on the learning development of children. This method encourages children towards independence, order and a freedom to explore but within boundaries. In a cycle 1 classroom (2.5 - 6 years), Montessori children learn through sensory-motor activities that develop cognitive behaviours through hands-on experience.

The Montessori Curriculum extends children's education in 5 focus areas and they are:

  • Practical Life activities
  • Sensorial Education
  • Mathematics
  • Language
  • Culture & Cosmic education

Our Montessori classroom is mixed aged (2.5 - 6 years), and the benefits of a mixed age group is significant and crucial to enable children to learn skills such as grace and courtesy, social skills as well as leadership skills.

The children in BMEL are provided with plenty of opportunities to explore and be responsible towards their own learning. Our role as educators will involve careful observation and preparation of the learning environment to ensure that children are provided with choices and freedom within limits.
