Peterhouse International Preschool is accelerating for both the heart and mind.
Sponge Learners (6 – 10 Months)
The Peterhouse Sponge Learners Course is based on the philosophy of renowned childhood Italian educator, Dr. Maria Montessori. It allows parents and teachers to teach from their heart and to follow the basic instincts of a child, allowing them to learn through play and discovery. At Peterhouse, we believe in allowing children to experience the world with their senses.
At Peterhouse, our sensory exploration allows children to come into contact with safe and interesting new textures, such as paint, water, different fruits, and kinetic sand to name a few. Contact and simple art-based activities with these materials enhances a child’s fine motor skills in addition to creative potential.
Peterhouse students also engage in interactive song and dance, thereby developing their gross motor skills and allowing the children to exert their energy while simultaneously expressing themselves.
Our Sponge Learners Programme incorporates special parent-child bonding aspects, including a unique 15-minute baby massage in addition to an emphasis on eye and physical contact.
