Meadowbrook Montessori School
Berkshire, Primary, montessori
At Meadowbrook we believe that the foundation of a good education fosters a love of learning and the ability to adapt to change. At the Primary Department children really are seen as partners in the learning process. Meadowbrook children are taught how to learn and not just what to learn. Our unique approach to Positive Discipline and the strong work ethic we engender in our children means that they graduate fully prepared for what lies ahead. They are encouraged to take responsibility for their behaviour and work, they are able to use their initiative in real situations and take ownership of the decisions that they make. They develop refined time management skills to assist them in planning their day and learn how to make the very best of our rigorous yet innovative hybrid curriculum – the results of which go way beyond traditional programmes of study.
At Meadowbrook, lessons are introduced simply and concretely in the early years and are reintroduced several times during the following years at increasing degrees of abstraction and complexity. Although we offer a warm and supportive academic atmosphere, we set a high level of expectation for the quality of thought, work, and the mastery of content and skills.
At the Primary level the children are actively involved in discussion and investigation. Visitors to the school and regular outings to places of educational interest are used to support the schools varied curriculum. Our broad based curriculum encompasses the very best of the National Curriculum as well as the highly successful Montessori programme.
A selection of after school clubs include soccer, drama, chess, art, study skills, needlecraft, knitting, board games, debating, calligraphy, bike club and road safety, rollerblading and ICT. Clubs are rotated each term.
Children who turn 5 within the academic year can join our Primary School in the autumn term although entry is not automatic and follows an informal selection process. Each child will normally stay in the Lower Primary Class for three years, moving up to Upper Primary at the end of Year 3 until year 6.
Children in the Primary School and Reception children may join after school clubs which run from 3.40pm to 4.40pm.
