The Pre-School section of Our Lady of Assumption Schools is a specially-prepared Montessori environment, laying a solid foundation for children aged 18 months to 5+. All our pupils follow an adapted form of the Montessori method of child education which is regarded throughout the world as unsurpassed in its ability to help younger children achieve their full potential.
Our Pre-School classes are divided into four levels:

  • Green Class (18 months+)
  • Yellow Class (2+)
  • Blue Class (3+)
  • Pink Class (4+)

The teaching approach is child-centred. It neither imposes on the child nor does it abandon him/her in total free play. Each class is equipped with Montessori didactic materials in the five Montessori curriculum areas:

  • Practical Life Exercises
  • Sensorial education
  • Mathematics
  • Language
  • Cultural Subjects

These provide formative activities for the pupils within a carefully planned and structured environment in which the child can learn and grow at his/her own pace, along the lines of natural development, with the teacher acting as a guide, facilitator and an encourager.

The HeadTeacher

St. Julie Billiart, Foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, described Catholic education as “uplifting, inspiring, and the most important work that can be done on earth.” These words of St. Julie so perfectly illustrate the beliefs and dedication of the talented faculty and staff here at Our Lady of Assumption Schools Trans Nkisi Onitsha.
