What International Preschools Entail

 

 

QUESTION: WHAT'S THE CURRICULUM LIKE IN AN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL?

JAYMEE The curriculum at Rosemary Hall is guided by Montessori and the English Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (a British system), which have very similar goals. Kids are not assessed by grades but by the teacher's observation and record keeping. We have four- to six-year-olds in the same class. (The Montessori method recommends having classes of mixed age groups.) They have the freedom to choose what they want to work on. The teacher moves around in the class to facilitate the children's learning and gives each child individual attention.
