Lower School At A Glance

At Chapterhouse we believe in educating the whole child, providing a strong academic based and develop critical thinking skills. During their time in the Lower School (Nursery – Class V) we deliver lessons from across the academic spectrum including language, art, science, mathematics, technology, social and religious studies. Rather than presenting these areas as separate pods, we create a holistic program that finds and reinforces the links that exist across all these areas. We encourage our children to experiment and learn from their mistakes, teaching them that anything worth getting is worth the hard work required. We make sure that they see themselves in the context of the larger world around them, learning compassion and empath for each other. Our personalized approach ensures that each and every child feels confident in their importance and develops a strong sense of self esteem.

During the Lower School years, we start each day with a morning meeting, students and teachers greet each other, share any concerns they may have, conduct a group activity and hear the announcements for the day. The process is repeated at the end of the day with a similar agenda to reinforce the days accomplishments.  This specific routine helps every child become a respectful speaker and listener, which in turn translates into their learning behavior.
