Let’s take the time ….
L’école bilingue Montessori de Nice has decided to open a new class for the children just above the age of 3 years for a smooth transition from the 2-3 class to the 3-6 class.
Open in September 2018, this class is a cosy cocoon for just 12 children who are gently escorted in their transition to one of the two 3-6 classrooms.
The focus of this new class is to enable the children to acquire the confidence and the autonomy for a successful integration in 3-6, knowing how to work with the educational material and understanding the rules and mechanisms of their new classroom.
During the first part of the school year the children spend some of their time with the 2-3 class, sharing break times and working on activities and projects together. This allows them to understand how it feels to be one of the older children and to help the younger ones, boosting their confidence. Later in the year the children progressively share more time with those from the 3-6 classes to learn to connect with them and to start considering their transition eagerly and with confidence.
In terms of skills development, emphasis is given to speech development both in French and English, to motricity and to the ability for each child to be accepted in his uniqueness and to express his specific needs.
