"Education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences upon the environment."

The mission of Raffles Montessori is to enable its children to develop strategies for the acquisition of the knowledge, skills and values they will need to participate meaningfully in our culturally diverse society through a distinctive Montessori approach embodying individualised instruction, mixed-age grouping, qualified Montessori directress (teacher), an international curriculum, a prepared classroom environment and a complete set of specialised Montessori educational materials approved by the Association Montessori Internationale.

A Three-Year Programme:

Raffles Montessori offers each child their own personal learning programme at an exact point of interest and mastery. The objective is to assist in the total development of the child- social, emotional, intellectual, physical, cultural and spiritual - so that the child will be better prepared for life and able to adjust to changing conditions of their environment.

  • The first year - the child begins the adaptation to the classroom's prepared environment. The child will be presented lessons for developing skills in concentration, sequencing, attention span, memory skills, auditory and visual discrimination, co-ordination, language and socialisation. The first year lays a strong foundation for all academin skills to be presented in the following two years.
  • The second year - the child begins working more in-depth with letters and numbers and begins the writing process. The passageway to abstraction begins to unfold. The child continues to explore activities that provide a creative learning experience.
  • The third year - brings fruition from the first two. The child develops reading and writing skills. The child becomes confident and concious of his/her own knowledge. This is the year he/she knows and is ready to move on to the next level in a primary (elementary) school.
