“Start as you mean to go on”

Early year’s education is important and the foundation for a child’s future development as a well balanced child. We develop good social functions, IQ, concentration and values.

We offer a friendly and secure learning/playing space to inspire and give a positive attitude through learning by hands on play and physical activities.

All children are different and the St. Edmund’s environment will encourage the children to feel positive about themselves and quickly develop spiritually, culturally, socially as well as academically.



"The foundation for a learning journey through life."



Key Differences between Montessori, Traditional and the Cambridge International Schools StartSmart4kids (r) approach to Education:-

Montessori: based on helping the natural development of the human being
Traditional: based on the transfer of a fixed stock of knowledge
StartSmart4kids: Both

Montessori: Children follow their own individual interest in deciding what to learn.
Traditional - children learn accordingly to a set curriculum which is the same for everyone.
CIS StartSmart4kids: The children learn at their own pace and style, but we help each child to be stimulated to follow our customised curriculum.

Montessori - children teach themselves using materials specially prepared for the purpose.
Traditional -
 children are taught everything by the teacher.
CIS StartSmart4kids: We adopt a 'hands-on' approach, but leave the children 'to discover' for themselves.

Montessori - understanding comes through the manipulation of materials and the promotion of children's ability to find things out for themselves.
Traditional - learning is based on the memorisation of facts and is limited to what is given .
CIS StartSmart4kids: We create the environment for each child to excel with activities that will enhance their emotional, regulatory and social development as well as increase their maths and language skills through structured teaching.
