5 Montessori Areas

01 Practical Life Exercise

The Exercises of Practical Life, which are the foundation of a Montessori environment, provide a sane and wholesome range of activities that allow a child to develop control and coordination of movement, awareness, of his/her environment, good work habits, responsibility, concentration, attention, independence, order and positive self-image which can be attained by spontaneous and purposeful work.

5 Sensorial Training

Children through the five senses. The primary purpose of sensorial exercises is to further refine his/her senses of touch, smell, sight and hearing. The materials used in the sensorial exercises will be unlike anything else that a child has encountered in the way of playthings. A child will be able to perceive sizes, shapes, colors, sounds, textures, odors etc. The sensorial materials lay a solid foundation for Mathematics, Geometry, Geography, Botany, Art and Music.

4 Montessori Language

A multi-sensory approach that combines phonics, stories and language experiences to bring meaning to the learning of reading and writing. In the system, the child does not learn by heart, but utilizes all his/her senses to help him/her read and write with proper understanding. Discovery becomes interesting, fun and creative through activities in the Pink, Blue and Green Montessori language series. Grammar will be taught to enhance the child's attention to the use of  words in everyday speaking.

3 Montessori Mathematics

Your child will be taught addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, reading of clock, the decimal system, number bonds, length, weight, calendar, capacity, graph, money and problem solving.
