Welcome to Highgate Montessori. Here you will find a unique & caring school which blends academic excellence with a dedication to the social, emotional and physical development of each and every child.
We offer an unsurpassed learning environment for our children, irrespective of age and ability. Our school follows the Montessori philosophy and the curriculum is blended with the Early Year’s Foundation Stage recommendations. Which, when combined together, provide an essential foundation for higher learning, while at the same time encouraging the development of the child as a responsible, resourceful, confident, thinking person who is well equipped for life.
Our timetable provides a varied and exciting curriculum, allowing for a generous learning cycle where children can focus undisturbed.
Our strong academic curriculum is further enriched by music, art, physical education and two languages; French and Mandarin. We also offer English as a Second Language(ESL) to all children for whom English is not their mother tongue.
In addition, we offer open-air learning where the children are given ample opportunity to explore the outdoor environments within the school and the local community.
We recruit teaching staff known as “guardians” to guide your child through the curriculum and the crucial Early Years developmental stages. Our Guardian-to-child ratio is kept at a level that supports each individual child with ease.
Children who have been in our environment for two to three years can soundly grasp abstract concepts at an accelerated level thanks to the special didactic materials in our environment and the dedication passion and care of our guardians.
We value our relationship with you, the parents, and look forward to your involvement in the school, and to forging a warm relationship in the interest of your child as we prepare them for the world in which they live.
Wherever they move on to from Highgate Montessori, you can have the confidence that they have developed an excellent foundation.
Most importantly, we understand that you face an important decision in selecting a pre-school for your child. If you have questions or would like to schedule a visit to Highgate Montessori please do contact us. We will be happy to give you a tour of our learning environment and invite you to spend time with our children and team. I will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
