Our vision to foster individual learning and child development at an early stage through active, hands-on discovery and exploration is achieved by blending the Montessori, EYFS and the Nigerian curriculum.
At Cindy Oaks, we support your child every step of the way – providing an engaging, flexible and rich curriculum that is designed to inspire them. Built around extensive research, 21st-century technology, and developmentally appropriate instruction, we carefully introduce and reinforce the concepts of Math, Science, Language, Culture and Science, Practical Life – Me and the Environment, Music, Art, and health. We look forward to sharing this experience with your family and partnering with you on your child’s educational journey.
AIM OF OUR CURRICULUM
“One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child” —Maria Montessori
Montessori is an educational approach grounded in the belief that children learn best within an environment that respects and nurtures their individual unique potential. We attest that Children in a Montessori environment develop at their own pace through sequenced learning experiences provided in a carefully prepared classroom environment. Our mode of communication is English.
The priority of the Early Years Foundation Stage programme is a holistic approach to the care and education of children, and to their all-round emotional and physical development, taking into account their relationship with the world and people around them.
