“To create and sustain a multi-cultural, inquiry-based, child-centred education which combines the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and the International Montessori Curriculum, one that embraces diversity and allows each child to develop to their full potential by becoming independent, self-motivating, and responsible global citizens.”**



Our vision is to develop the whole child; socially, physically, cognitively, creatively and emotionally by creating an authentic “prepared” learning environment under the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme and the International Montessori Curriculum, one that:

…..and above all else one that cultivates a life-long love of learning by supporting children in “learning how to learn!”




**Mission Statement from the IB
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful  world through intercultural understanding and respect. To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international  education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
