Our School is a unique community of teachers and school families from all around the world. We are diverse in our race, culture, and ethnicity. We all have varying access to higher learning, we live in a country with a huge variance between socioeconomic status, our social identity and various skill sets, family morals and core values, and the language we speak. This list is just a few of many differences that makes us unique in our identity.
In addition to the diversity of our school community, also are our teaching methodologies. Sandpipers Nursery and School uses the Montessori methodology, a hands on approach balanced with the local traditional system using workbooks. Our school is quite the opposite of the schooling system that most of our Grenadian teaching attended as young children, in fact it can be quite unfamiliar. If you are passionate about alternate educational methodologies, Sandpipers is the place for you!
