Our mission is to provide a stimulating early care and educational experience which promotes each child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
Since we offer a purely Montessori base teaching, here is a break down of the curriculum below
Practical Life activities are everyday life activities that involve- all aspects of the child’s life. The child observes these activities in the environment and gains knowledge through the real experience of how to accomplish life skills purposefully.
Practical life activities help give the child a sense of being and belonging, established through participation in daily life activities such as self-care, caring for the environment and movement of objects.
At Lafayette, we believe that language is innate and it is in the nature of the child to express themselves both orally and through the written word. Our language curriculum is designed to enhance vocabulary and explore both written and spoken language. Through language-based activities, such as the sandpaper letters and the moveable alphabet, children learn phonetic sounds and how to compose words phonetically. They progress using concrete materials to compose their own written work, read the work of others, and learn to communicate their unique thoughts and feelings.
The human mind is by nature mathematical, At Lafayette, our numerical activity introduced the child to using concrete sensorial materials which encourages the child to understand basic maths concept such as learning number recognition, counting and sequencing of numbers. These sensorial works prepare the child for more abstract mathematical concepts such as the decimal system and mathematical operation.
Our cultural activities lead the child to experience music, stories, from the child’s society and cultural background. A range of globes, puzzle maps and folders containing pictures from different countries all help to give the child an insight into different cultures. The culture area encourages children to develop their capacity for creation. Through cultural activities, the child develops an awareness and appreciation of the world around them.
This concept of teaching is geared towards training all the senses of the human body and aiding the young child to fully activate them to his or her full potential.
Our lessons integrate listening, doing, thinking and speaking to deepen the learning for every student. Our teachers bring our curriculum to life, connecting numerous academic disciplines.
