The daycare group caters for children aged upto 1.8 years. In this age kids gross motor skills develop and we design activities that can develop these skills.
They are aslo engaged in listening to music and stories that will make them curious to learn and develop their listening skills. We strictly follow parent's instructions regarding kids sleeping and eating patterns.
The play group caters for children aged between 1.8 - 2.5 years. In this age toddlers are too curious to know about everything around them. They understand everything through experience and it promotes and encourages the explosion of language.
Children of this age group, are stepping out of their house for the first time and our environment help them gain independence and concentration working with Montessori materials. They start caring for their environment and mastering toilet training. Toddlers also participate in group activities such as play, stories, sensory activity, music and art along with the old age group.
At home your child is most likely heard saying “I want to do it myself!” In the Montessori environment we not only allow it but encourage it. Maria Montessori observed that children love to do “real work” and when allowed they not only learn but become more confident in the process. We create a classroom that keeps them engaged, happy and busy.
You are likely to see a 3-year old doing something such as watering the classroom plants and polishing its leaves. This is not pretend she is really participating in real “work” and is part of our day today activity. You may see a 4-year old lying down at a work rug with a 5-year old friend working with the movable alphabet and doing short vowel word building. Not only is the older child learning from teaching the 4-year old but the 4-year old is feeling proud to be doing the “big kid” work and is confident when challenged to move to the next level.
Children in the Montessori classroom will often spend 2-3 years in the same classroom. They will begin as a learner and leave as a leader. The main areas of a Montessori environment are Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Math, Geography/Science and Art. We aim to create an environment in which everyone learns, works/plays, shares and celebrates together.
The kindergarten year is one of the most valuable and rewarding of the early Montessori learning period. This is when children have great leadership opportunities in the classroom and exhibit dynamic social growth.
Our kindergarten program is designed for students to have opportunity to work in their mixed age classrooms as well have independent kindergarten work periods. Montessori kindergarten graduates typically exhibit advanced academic knowledge, independent work habits, great confidence and most importantly an intrinsic love for learning.
