Daily Observation Reports

Our daily observation reports (handed over weekly) give Jade Drive parents a unique insight into their little one’s day and progress. The report acts as a snapshot of a student’s day, capturing what they learnt, friendships they made, overall mood, progress and levels of activity during specific times.

6 Enrichment Programs

We offer six extra-curricular programs that are designed to complement and go beyond our standard curriculum to meet the contemporary learning needs of our students. These programs include Elocution, Mini Manners, STEM-inspired learning, Music and Movement, Arts and Crafts, and Gardening.

A Beautiful and Calming Natural Environment

Our school, which is located away from the hustle and bustle of the city provides children with a calm and peaceful natural environment where they can enjoy and explore nature.

Clearly Defined Emergency & Preparedness Policy

We have created clearly defined emergency policies highlighting topics such as injury, fire safety, adverse weather conditions, threats of violence, terrorism, and COVID-19 preparedness. All our staff members are trained to enact these policies. You may find our emergency preparedness procedures highlighted in our parent handbook.

A Comprehensive Montessori Curriculum

We are exclusively a Montessori school and are avid believers of Dr Maria Montessori and the time-tested Montessori Philosophy. At Jade Drive International Preschool, Sri Lanka, we offer our students a comprehensive Montessori curriculum that includes all aspects of the Montessori philosophy. 

Fully-equipped Montessori Classrooms

We are one of the few preschools in Sri Lanka to have fully equipped and open-planned Montessori classrooms. We offer spacious, air-conditioned classrooms with child-sized furniture and toilet fixtures. Furthermore, our classrooms are split into separate learning areas and arranged methodically to encourage free movement and to enhance the child’s engagement with the learning material.

21 Years of Experience in Elocution

Elocution is the skill of communicating clearly and expressing one’s thoughts concisely and pleasingly. We believe it is a vital trait that every kid should master to become confident and influential speakers. Our students will have a remarkable opportunity to study elocution under a teacher & examiner of a leading Speech and Drama Academy who has over 21 years of teaching experience.  

Friendly and Professional Teaching Staff

Our teachers are friendly, professional, and are highly proficient in English. They are handpicked, trained, well remunerated, and provided pleasant working conditions to ensure that our children are taught by highly motivated professionals who have our students’ best interests in mind.

With this in mind, we have meticulously converted an area of 5,400 square feet to promote active play, exploration, and a love for nature. Our gardens are beautifully kept and offer several dedicated play areas.
