We believe that every child is unique, and has varying needs and requirements. We aim to work with your child at the pace he/she is comfortable with, providing the attention and care needed to maximize learning potential.
Our curriculum has been developed based on the following four areas of learning as per the Montessori Methodology
To further enrich the child’s learning, we have incorporated interesting and fun filled activities such as yoga, cooking, photography, gymnastics, gardening, sewing etc. as a part of our curriculum.
Purpose: To help the child develop coordination, concentration, a sense of personal independence, and a sense of order.
The exercises involve objects normally encountered in everyday living experiences such as cleaning, pouring, dressing and polishing. These exercises fall into five main categories:
Preliminary Exercises; Care of the Environment; Care of the person; Grace and Courtesy; Social Relations and Movement. Many are fundamental exercises that the child needs to master to be able to live and participate in the real adult world.
Purpose: To help refine a child's ability for visual discrimination, and develop her olfactory sense, gustatory sense, and hearing sense, thereby making a child more independent and confident.
The sensorial area introduces the child to abstract concepts through hands on materials. The child explores size, length, volume, color, sound, smell and taste. The materials give meaning to such terms as bigger, smaller, lighter, darker, softer etc. Many of the activities come in groups of ten, which is an introduction to our base 10 in math system. Many of the materials also introduce different geometric shapes and concepts.
Purpose: To prepare the child for writing and reading.
The language materials provide a systematic progression of activities to develop the necessary skills for speaking, writing, and reading. The hand is strengthened through use of the Practical Life Exercises and knobbed materials in all areas. Through the use of activities which reinforce precise skills of visual perception, the child learns to observe slight differences in size and shape, which prepares him/her to discriminate between letter shapes. The child learns the phonetic sounds of lower case letters.
Purpose: To help the child develop concepts of numeration (counting patterns), place value (reading and writing whole), fractions and the basic operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
The acquisition of mathematical principles is seen as developing logically from concrete to abstract, and from simple to complex. Once a child has mastered the basic concepts involved in sensorial materials and practical life activities the child would naturally progress to the Math Materials.
