MONTESSORI APPROACH

The approach that makes the difference

The Montessori method is an approach where children are provided the opportunity to learn and enrich their skills through self-directed activity, hands-on learning, and collaborative tasks which allow them to explore the knowledge available to them, and to develop their maximum potential. 


 

CURRICULUM

The curriculum consists of four main areas which are focused towards a specific set of skills and knowledge prepared for the developmental needs of the child.

 PRACTICAL LIFE SKILLS

Practical Life Skills aim to develop order, concentration, coordination and independence (OCCI) within a child. The activities range from carrying exercises to food preparations and such tasks that are recognizable to children from their home experiences.

SENSORIAL EXERCISES

Sensorial Exercises sharpen the five senses to enable children to understand the many impressions they perceive in their environment. Each of the sensorial materials isolates one defining quality such as colour, weight, shape, texture, size, sound, smell and temperature.

MATHEMATICS

Mathematics equips every child with the fundamentals such as number-quantity correspondence, and concept of four mathematical operations.

LANGUAGE

Language focuses on vocabulary building, reading and comprehension, skill in printing and oral communication.

OTHER AREAS

GEOGRAPHY Children learn the features and systems of the Earth's surface including continents, oceans, etc.
BOTANY AND ZOOLOGY They gain awareness that a plant or an animal has its ecological purpose and how its existence balances life on Earth as a whole. They also learn the different parts of the tree/flower and body parts of animals. 
ASTRONOMY Learning solar system is also an integration to the lesson while ARTS inspires children to express their artistic side through dance, crafts, songs or role playing.
