04 - 36 Months
The toddler years form part of the vital foundation years in a child’s life. This is the period when learning happens through movement and the five senses. The very young child is learning to control their body and develop the early intellect through exploration. The Generation Nest environment is structured around the child’s natural tendencies for curiosity, order, orientation, and exploration. This is a safe environment where children can learn to control their bodies and build their minds, by interacting with a specifically prepared environment that supports natural developmental needs.
3 - 6 Years
We have fully equipped and staffed pre-primary classrooms that are run according to Montessori philosophies. The children in these classrooms are vertically grouped (3 – 6 Years) as children of this age are naturally coming into a social phase of development where the understanding of friendships and working together is an area of focus.
6 - 12 Years
Generation Primary continues with the Montessori ethos of independent children working within a 6 – 9 Years and 9 – 12 Years age span. The mixed-age groupings allow the children to work together, to learn from and teach each other in this next step of their development.
At this stage, in conjunction with the Montessori 6 – 9 Years, and 9 – 12 Years philosophy, we introduce the Cambridge model of education. This integrates the understanding of how to learn from Montessori Primary into a governed framework of education – one of the strongest forms of education recognised in the world.
12 - 15 Years
This pillar of Generation is now completely governed by the Cambridge Education model. This is where Generation adds Application of Academics (AoA) to the classroom. This is a process whereby learners are given projects and tasks that resemble the work they are doing, in an environment that is real. It is an application of academics in the real world.
