1/1

Montessori isn't just a curriculum, it's a philosophy - a movement. 

Dr. Montessori believed that education is more than letters, numbers, colours, and shapes. We are passionate about preparing your child for a successful career and a fulfilling life in our complex, global and multicultural society. The list of notable graduates of Montessori programmes is long and distinguished, but did you know that the founders of Microsoft, Google, Facebook and Amazon all attended Montessori schools?

At Jade Drive, the ultimate goal of your child’s education is authentic, holistic independence. Our primary focus is to foster an environment of cognitive, physical, emotional and social development across all learning levels in the fullest possible sense. Your child will gain knowledge, independence, confidence, creativity, and social ability that will allow him to choose his own goals and pursue them over time. To achieve this, we employ:

Specialised and Unique Hands-on Learning Materials


Specialised and unique hands-on learning materials that are specifically catered towards each age group to support self-teaching and provide a well-rounded, holistic development.




Montessori Certified and Experienced


Our teachers are Montessori certified and experienced to guide your child. They will function more as a role model, record keeper, demonstrator, and observer of your child's behavior and growth.
