The Montessori 4 Year Old Friday Program is designed as an extension to the Preschool Program and is an aid in the smooth transition from the Preschool environment into Reception.
This program is designed for children in the year before beginning their formal schooling. It runs in much the same way as the Preschool sessions but with greater emphasis on developing school readiness behaviours and early literacy and numeracy skills.
As well as the academic preparation, participation in whole school assemblies and other whole school activities helps prepare children socially and emotionally for the next step into formal schooling.
Fridays from 9.00am – 3.15pm
This program is for children in the 12 month period before their formal schooling commences.
The Preschool Friday program is conducted by Anne-Marie Cummings. Parents are usually able to quickly catch up with teachers at drop off or pick up time. However, if you require a more formal appointment, please arrange a mutually convenient time. Teachers can be contacted by phoning the school or alternatively you may wish to email them.
Their email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Our teachers will endeavour to respond to you as soon as possible during classroom breaks. Thank you.

This term in the Friday Program we have been learning about fractions. The children have been really engaged in this unit of work, and have loved showing each other fractions they have found or created throughout the day.

This term in the Friday Program we have had a big focus on ‘numbers’. We have been reading number books such as ‘The Peddler’ and ‘The doorbell rang’, and singing lots of number songs – some favourites being ‘5 guitars’, ‘The ants go marching’ and ‘This old man’.
