Each day, Amatus provides a balanced approach to learning, giving you the peace of mind that your child will have fun as he develops socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. We give your child the tools to become confident and self-aware. In a caring and stimulating atmosphere, our passionate and engaging teachers give your child endless opportunities to grow, learn, and imagine—whether building a spaceship to blast off to Mars or inviting a new friend to share a story during group time. While academics play a role in development, we believe there are many other opportunities for enhancing the whole child.
We recognize that curriculum is more than what appears in manuals or a series of activities. We believe curriculum is everything that happens in the classroom, from interactions and meals to singing and playing. We never miss an opportunity to educate.
Amatus teaches children life skills that go beyond reading, writing, and Maths. Playing with toys helps develop motor skills and teaches lessons about sharing with friends. Singing songs while washing hands instils an interest in the arts while forging social bonds and educating children about the need for good hygiene. Each activity is designed with a specific lesson or outcome in mind.
We provide a balance between choice and structured activities, between group and individual pursuits, and between teacher and child-directed experiences. We teach seasonally relevant lessons. For example, children learn about spiders in spring and farming in autumn. And, we give families the tools to continue the education at home.
We believe in developing the whole child by meeting their social, emotional, physical, and intellectual needs so that they can learn and grow every day. However, children develop differently at different ages, which is why we offer child care programs designed for certain age groups
It is important to create a link between home and the Academy and to work as a team to develop each child as a whole. We normally have an open door policy where families can visit the Academy at any time but this is not possible during the Covid-19 pandemic.
