    Curriculum Details:

    PRACTICAL LIFE

    The exercises of Practical Life are the foundation of a Montessori environment, which allows the child to develop control and coordination of movement, awareness of their environment, orderly thought patterns, independent work habits and responsibility.  The direct aim of these exercises is to master self-help skills and to build confidence and independence.  The indirect aim of these exercises is to improve and refine the fine motor skills of the hand and arm muscles in preparation for writing skills.

    SENSORIAL

    These exercises aim in the developing and refining of the senses by providing organized opportunities for contact with the environment.  Through the isolation of the senses, a refinement of the senses can be developed.  Sensorial discrimination leads form the concrete to the abstract and is a preparation for the intellectual and the logical mind.

    LANGUAGES

    Language is taught phonetically using materials which increase vocabulary, development of visual perception and correction of pronunciation.  Once a child has mastered the entire alphabet, we can begin to compose and build words in steps, finally achieving reading and writing skills.  In addition to English, the children will also learn French.

    MATH

    Children are introduced to math functions through concrete materials.  Gradually as the child absorbs the concepts, simple computations are introduced in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  Math is introduced using games like – ‘snake game, bank game’ so that the child learns math concepts without realizing it.  The child’s learning is truly effortless!

    CULTURE

    Cultural subjects encompass Geography, Botany/Biology, Social Sciences and History, Art through indoor and outdoor activities, individually and in groups.

    MUSIC

    Children will be taught appreciation of music and rhythm with simple percussion instruments, singing, dancing each day.  They will be taught basic music literacy as well as trained to recognize tones.
