Starville Pre-School is a well structured environment for children from the ages of 18 months to 5 years. We use the Montessori approach to teaching and learning in a "prepared environment" utilising its principles and resources designed to meet the peculiar needs of every child. All of our programs are child centered and dedicated to helping each child develop independence, self esteem, respect and a lifelong love of learning facilitated with the use of didactic materials.
The Starville Elementary years admits Children between the ages of 5 + years to 10 + years into the school.
We use an integration of the Nigerian, British and Montessori Curriculum. This is adopted for a balanced, broad-based curriculum that encourages children to be academically inquisitive and to take responsibility and initiative as they move into this more structured phase of their schooling.
We develop unique, sensitive individuals. With, a solid foundation laid in, the Pre-School years, this is a stage where children are ready for abstract thoughts which lead to mastering abstract concepts. Children are encouraged to explore, challenged to learn core skills and guided to be proficient in oral reading, written communication and acquire dexterity with numbers.
When children are prepared to move beyond the Pre-School classroom, we provide a more structured approach and begin to facilitate a successful, transition to elementary school. In Starville elementary years, children are taught to express themselves and to self - teach by researching. Through research, they are able to share an abundance of knowledge with each other. The Children's physical, emotional and social skills are developed.
Our curriculum is dedicated to developing learners who are confident, responsible, innovative, and engaged; and our secondary section admits students aged 10-16, running a combined curriculum which includes the Nigerian and British Content that prepares students for:
- BECE (Junior NECO) and /any other local examination for this stage,
- WAEC/NECO (SSCE) and
- IGCSE Examinations.
Our curriculum is broken into five areas:
The Practical Life Exercises: For children, everyday routines and practices of life like preparing food, dressing, cleaning, habitual courtesies, and more are new, exciting and joyous challenges. One of the hallmarks of the Montessori Method is that it takes full advantage of the child's motivation to learn these things at a very young age. The practical life curriculum in Montessori provides a scope and sequence for these everyday routines and practices. Practical life in Montessori develops motor control and coordination, develops independence, concentration, and builds a sense of responsibility. These exercises aim to bridge the gap between home and school and aid the child in that transition.
Sensorial Education: Sensorial activities are used in Montessori learning to help children in discrimination and order. They help children become aware of details through, first, strongly contrasted sensations (red vs. blue) and then, through variously graded sensations (various shades of blue). The materials isolate a single quality: colour, weight, shape, texture, size, sound, smell, etc., for children to train their focus. It broadens and refines a child's senses, perception and awareness.
Mathematics: Early Mathematics is designed to transform ideas into actions, using concrete learning materials, resulting in making abstract concepts clearer to the learner. These experiences explore the underlying fundamentals of algebra, geometry, logic and statistics, plus operational principles, such as addition, multiplication, division and subtraction.
Language: With Montessori Method of teaching, basic writing, reading, listening and speaking skills are developed. The phonic method of learning to read alphabets produces understanding because a child first learns the phonic sound of each letter. With the help of language materials, the child automatically knows how to hold the pencil. Language experiences encourage children to master and blend sounds to build words, instead of the traditional memorization of 'sight words'. This gives children the tools to read at a higher level.
Cultural Studies: The Montessori Cultural Studies curriculum provides children with an opportunity to explore the larger world. Here the child is introduced to Zoology, Botany, History, Geography, Science, Music, Art and Peace Education. With the use of materials, the children learn about the universe and nurture an interest in observing nature and discovering more about the world around them. Children learn to appreciate their culture, other cultures and the world at large.
Extra-curricular Activities (Sports/Clubs)
This is an integral part of our school. It is an inclusion of elective programs; that stimulate children and allow them to learn while playing and exploring creative outlets that will help them advance in the future. These opportunities go beyond the core Montessori Curriculum, giving children the chance to further expand their minds, energize their bodies, and build their confidence.?
Weekly extracurricular classes and activities Additional fees apply classes vary by age. Discover opportunities such as:
Chess and Scrabble
Homework goes home every day and returned back the next day. This is to maintain a high standard. Parents are encouraged to support their child/ward in this area.
We offer a wide range of activities to allow our students the opportunity to experience success in all part of school life in order to gain the confidence with which to tackle those aspects they find difficult. The variety of provision offered by staff enables students to pursue activities they enjoy or to receive additional help and support with their curriculum studies. Involvement in extracurricular activities is strongly encouraged and monitored by the teachers.
Each student (Year 7 to Year 11) is expected to register for two After-School Activities. Year 12 students may participate in After-School activities only on Tuesdays, as Science practical classes have been scheduled for Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the Club periods.
