GENERATION SCHOOLS STRUCTURE
The Generation Education system places children into vertical grouping bands (1 – 3 and 3 – 6, 6 – 9 and 9 – 12, 12 – 15 and 15 – 18 Years) which allows the children to learn from their peers of different ages and encourages social development.
Generation schools will comprise of:
- 04 – 36 Month Phase
- 3 – 6 Year Phase
- 6 – 9 Year Phase
- 9 – 12 Year Phase
- 12 – 15 Year Phase
- 15 – 18 Year Phase
The toddler years’ form part of the vital foundation years in a child’s life. This is the period when learning happens through movement and the senses. The very young child is learning to control her/his body and develop the early intellect through exploration. The Generation Nest environment is structured around the child’s natural tendencies for curiosity, order, orientation and exploration. This is a safe environment where children can learn to control their bodies and build their minds, by interacting with a specially prepared environment that supports natural development needs.
We have fully equipped and staffed pre-primary classrooms that are run according to Montessori philosophies. The children in these classrooms are vertically grouped (3 – 6 Years) as children of this age are naturally coming into a social phase of development where the understanding of friendships and working together is an area of focus.
Generation Primary continues with the Montessori ethos of independent children working within a 6 – 9 Year and 9 – 12 Year age span. The mixed age groupings allow the children to work together, and learn from and teach each other in this next step of their development.
At this stage, in conjunction with the Montessori 6 – 9 Year, and 9 – 12 Year philosophy, we also introduce the Cambridge model of education. This is an integration of an understanding of how to learn from Montessori Primary into a governed framework of education, that is one of the strongest forms of educational recognition in the world.
This pillar of Generation is now completely governed by the Cambridge Education model. This is where Generation adds Application of Academics (AoA) to the classroom. This is a process where learners are given projects and tasks that resemble the work they are learning in an environment that is real. It is an application of academics in the real world.
This final pillar of education is the mental shift from a base of concrete understanding to an abstract form of thought. Governed by Cambridge education, this final phase is a synergy of an understanding forged in an electronic era. With a focus on understanding through technology this final phase of primary education, culminating in A levels allows the learner to experience lectures from around the world, communicate with learners from different countries and to understand the world they are entering. The exit qualification these learners will receive will increase the university entrance points they receive in comparison to other conventional schools and allows them the opportunity to study abroad.
