The children participate in Montessori class time conducted by the International Montessori-certified Vietnamese teachers for half a day. Each Montessori session lasts approximately 1.5 hours with five sessions per week for the 0-3 age group, and lasts around 2.5 hours with five sessions per week for the 3-6 age group.
he students study and explore such areas as Practical Life, Sensorial Work, Mathematics, Language, Culture (Science, History, and Geography), and Art. In each area, they make their own choices of activities appropriate to their capabilities and interests in order to actively construct and acquire knowledge through first-hand experiences.
b. ELA Program (U.S. Common Core Standards based)
During the other half day, the students participate in English class conducted by the native teachers for 30 minutes per session, with four sessions per week (for both the 0-3 and 3-6 age groups). The units are planned in line with the Montessori areas’ themes such as self-care, family, occupations, plants, animals, Tet and spring, water and other natural phenomena, etc. which enrich the students’ vocabulary and promote their ability to respond to and communicate in English.
c. Extensive experiences with Physical Education (PE), Art, and Culture curricula
During the week, other subjects such as Vietnamese, Music, Life Skills, and PE will be alternately conducted to facilitate the students’ all-round development and arouse their curiosity to explore new things.
