Programs at Montessori
Eden International School Algarve Portugal
“Help them to help themselves”
Each child is given the full ability to learn independently and is able to thrive with a teacher (Guide) who can help them get past any questions or misunderstandings. Through discovering in this self-learning environment, children learn at a deeper level than in any teacher-driven curriculum. The Montessori curriculum is broken down into five basic areas, as described below:
- Physical education
“Allowing children to take responsibility.”
The Elementary curriculum is an integrated thematic approach that ties the separate disciplines of the curriculum together into studies of the physical universe, the world of nature, and the human experience. Our integrated curriculum spans a vast array of subjects including ecology, chemistry, anatomy, art, music, physical education, reading, grammar, drama, history, mathematics, language, literature, geography, and others.
With more than a century of success, the Montessori program gives children the skills to move beyond memorization and recitation of facts into critical thinking. Students feel empowered and engaged by the process of learning as they work both on their own and with peers under the guidance of their teacher.
As part of our school curriculum and during aftercare time we offer many activities including the following:
In our weekly book club, all age groups can enjoy book readings from our growing library, and related activities in English and Portuguese, run by our teachers.
Arts and Crafts
Our arts and crafts classes, held both during daytime and as an after-school activity, expose children to different materials, and enable them to explore and create while they achieve structured goals.
Forest School and Land art
During Forest School and land art classes, our children experience creating art from nature, while connecting to nature and learning about the environment.
Extracurricular activities are open to students or non-students who enrol for the specific activity. Some are onsite and others are offsite. Please contact the office for current prices and arrangements. These activities will have an additional cost as we will be working with other teachers and organizations to provide them.
You can choose from the following:
For both the younger and older groups, we offer Yoga classes with experienced instructors. We will learn and practice Yoga through breathing, mindfulness, relaxation and Yoga basics.
Music and Dance
One of the highlights in our children’s week is our music and dance class. Our children learn different rhythms, dance moves, musical instruments, and just get creative.
Please enquire about swimming, ballet, hiphop, tap dance and tennis.
