Frequently Asked Questions

Is Montessori education only for infants?

Montessori education is commonly associated with the pre-school age, as the Method was first developed in this group. Montessori education goes in cycles; birth to 18 months, 18 months to 3 years, 3 – 6 years,

6 – 9 years, 12 – 15 years etc. These cycles follow the planes of development.

At Akwi Montessori School, we admit toddlers at 2½years, the Montessori Nursery (3 – 6 years and Elementary 6 to 12 years.

Why do children at AMS take tests and exams when other Montessori children do not?

AMS trains children to adapt in Cameroon if they choose to remain in the country.  The current education system in Cameroon relies heavily on examinations to ascertain the child’s level of academic achievement.  It is therefore necessary for the children at AMS to sit examinations at school in order to prepare for their future experiences.

Is Akwi Montessori School a nursery or primary school?

AMS offers Montessori education at the Nursery and Primary (Elementary) levels. Children typically begin in the nursery and progress through Lower and Upper Elementary.  Children may be admitted from traditional schools after an assessment to match them to the corresponding level.

What is the ratio of pupils to teachers?

Average class sizes are set by governments.  Montessori education supports the children’s independence and responsibility.  With many adults around, young children in particular stop thinking and wait to be told what to do.  At AMS currently we have a ratio of about 7 children to a teacher throughout the school.
