Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Culture
The Chrysalis Curriculum encompasses the Montessori Curriculum, the West Australian National Curriculum and the Early Years Learning Framework. The Montessori Curriculum is fully implemented in the Children’s house (ages 3 to 6 years). In the primary years, both the Montessori Curriculum and the West Australian Curriculum are presented to the students, with increasing emphasis on the West Australian Curriculum in the later Primary years.
The Chrysalis Curriculum weaves together the study of language, math, science, geography, history, art and music and is designed to challenge students to integrate and synthesise information, identify and analyse problems, and develop inquiry and problem-solving skills. In the process the students not only become well educated but also experience a genuine joy in learning. The child also progresses at his/her own speed. Thus, the level of stress is minimised, and the child is free to set their own challenges in collaboration with classroom teachers.
