1.Write out a Curriculum policy for your school.

List of important outcomes a child should achieve once they have completed the curriculum at my school.

-Social skills
-Emotional stability
-Physical development
-Language and vocabulary
-Love for learning
-Aware of their cosmic task
-Complete and successful assessment
-NB! Can only attain full Montessori curriculum if the child completes the full 3 year cycle. POLICY:

At Great Expectations Montessori School, though out the learners pre-primary 3-6 year old cycle, the child will be exposed to all learning areas within the Montessori curriculum. By working through the Montessori curriculum in its entirety, each learner will be exposed to learning areas that will develop the child as a whole, thus ensuring social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual development. The ultimate outcome for our 3-6 programme is an independent learner that has a love for learning and an internal understanding of their cosmic task, in other words an understanding that their role in life should always be to the betterment of the world. Through out the 3-6 pre-primary cycle the learner will be continually assessed, ensuring that they meet the required outcomes of the Montessori curriculum as well as the Revised National Curriculum.
