Our Montessori Curriculums run parallel with CAPS and are full of rich knowledge and enticing Montessori equipment. 

Nursery School
Ages 18 months to 3 years of age. The focus in the class is to ensure the child's first school experience is a happy, nurturing and safe one. Learning development of gross and fine motor skills, toilet training and socialising as part of a little community made up of the nursery curriculum. Our teacher-child ratio is no larger than 6:1, so adequate time and attention can be given to each child. 

Pre-school
The formal Montessori three year curriculum begins with the three year old. The child explores the Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Mathematics and Culture areas of the class. Learning takes place one-on-one, and each child progresses at his own pace. We are uncompromising on these key and critical aspects of Montessori education.

There is only a full-time option (5 days per week) in the pre-school. 

Primary
Hout Bay Montessori has both a junior and senior primary class. The children in these intimate and nurturing environments are taught by passionate and competent teachers. The teachers work together to plan and deliver the very unique and exciting Montessori elementary curriculum, to encourage exploration and promote a love of learning. Curriculum standards adhere to the national standards set by the Department of Education.
   
We use the Western Cape Education Department’s learning outcomes to assess how our children are doing (in literacy, numeracy and culture) with the benchmark of government schooling. 

The children at Hout Bay Montessori look so forward to their lunchtime meal, which is prepared with care by our kitchen staff. Lunches are enjoyed in each class in a homely way, as a family, with the children dishing up and washing their dishes afterwards. They love the home cooked warm dishes and are delighted by the ‘rainbow foods’ (fruit and vegetables) that accompany each meal.

We only use free range meats, chicken and eggs, and organic ingredients as far as possible.
