Our Curriculum

LANGUAGE

Language plays a major part in our education system. At Arts Junior Montessori we offer four languages; English, Japanese, Mandarin and Malay. English is the main language spoken in Arts Junior Montessori however the teachers who are educating the children in the specific languages speak only that language.

This enhances the children's ability to speak and understand the different languages. All languages offered are catered to the two types of children; Native Speakers and those learning the language as a second language.

ENGLISH

English is the most frequently spoken language in the classrooms. Though parents may choose which languages their child can learn, we hold the English language of high importance and strongly encourage every child to undertake the subject. In our English classes children will learn:

·The phonic sound of each letter in the alphabet
·How to combine letter sounds to make words
·How to read these words to make simple sentences
·Be introduced to simple story reading.

We have also established a learning program for children who are
preparing for Primary 1 education. Children in this group will learn:

·Spelling
·Reading
·Writing
·Basic Comprehension
·Phonics
·Math
·Art

ESL (English as a Second Language)

ESL is an acronym that is used primarily in educational settings and stands for English as a Second Language. It refers to teaching English to a person who's native or primary language is one other than English.
