The curriculum areas of Montessori kindergarten classroom are Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Cultural studies. Within each area, the lessons are prepared from simple to more complex giving the child the opportunity to achieve success, thus leading to independence and fulfilling the child’s natural desire to learn.
Our program is designed based on the Montessori methodology.
Practical life exercises instill care for self, for others, and for the environment. These activities include some of the daily routines the child has already observed at home: preparing food, washing dishes, dressing oneself, and practicing accepted societal rules of grace and courtesy.
Sensorial materials are designed to develop cognitive skills and to help children classify and order impressions by touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening, and exploring all the physical properties of their environment.
The Montessori classroom is rich in oral language opportunities, allowing the child to experience conversation, poetry, and stories. Children effortlessly link sound to symbol while tracing sandpaper letters with their fingers, thus encouraging the natural progression of written expression and reading skills.
Mathematical activities help children learn and understand the concepts of math by manipulating concrete materials. The work helps children acquire a solid understanding of basic mathematical principles and prepares them for later abstractive reasons.
Geography & Cultural Studies
Children learn about people and cultures in other countries with an attitude of respect and admiration. Through familiarity, children come to feel connected to the global human family.
