About Montessori By The Sea
A small but unique Montessori school for students from ages 21 months to 12 years of age (Toddler to Grade 6). Nestled among lush tropical landscape and across the road from the sea, Montessori By The Sea was established in September 2000, with just one Toddler and one Casa Program. Their school is now home to one Toddler Program (21 months-3 years old), two Casa programs (3-6 years), two Lower Elementary (6-9 years) Programs and one Upper Elementary Program (9-12 years).
Their classrooms are safe, warm and nurturing environments, prepared and staffed by dedicated educators. All classes are equipped with materials, equipment, and furniture that allow maximum exploration and use of the senses by their students, and are designed to meet the changing need of each child as an individual.
In all programmes, students participate in cooking and nutrition, multicultural experiences, Physical Education, French, Music and creative movement, Art, Science, Information Communications Technology and nature. Life skills, grace and courtesy, conflict resolution skills and programmes designed for their students to participate in the greater community, are also incorporated into their curriculum. The school follows the Montessori philosophy, while aligning with UK standards.
Their teachers are qualified professionals and their low ratios ensure that each child is given the individualised attention that he/she requires. They are very proud of their students and school, and encourage parents to observe and see the children working and interacting in the classroom.
