The Pear Tree Philosophy & Approach

At Pear Tree School, we believe that early childhood education should balance structured learning with creative exploration. Our philosophy fosters curiosity, confidence, and community, ensuring academic, social, emotional, and physical development.

Our approach integrates theme-based and project-based learning, allowing children to explore subjects in hands-on and meaningful ways.

Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum covers core subjects like literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies, all tied together through engaging themes. Each term, students dive into 2-3 themes that bring learning to life through interdisciplinary projects and activities.

Theme & Project-Based Learning

Math at Pear Tree

As a skills-based subject, math is more valuable when it is understood and actively applied, rather than simply memorized. Your child’s math learning will be embedded into practical themes, related to social studies (quantities, statistics), science (weights, speeds, measurements), and business (financial literacy).

Pear Tree students learn math in context, working with real-life numbers. Consequently, math at Pear Tree is more engaging, advanced and rewarding than traditional math classes.

Literacy at Pear Tree

Similarly, reading and writing are essential hands-on skills that span across subjects. Our language arts skills are interwoven into every part of your child’s education. Rather than textbooks, which often focus on memorization, Pear Tree students read themed fiction and non-fiction books that encourage both their imagination and critical thinking.

Students at Pear Tree develop incredible reading and writing skills as they expand their vocabularies beyond high-frequency textbook words, engage with different sources of information and have constant opportunities to practice.
