Activities of Everyday Living

These are activities part of our day-to-day living, designed and modified for effective use for the age groups. Our activities are made from real everyday objects. These activities act as a bridge from home life to a shared environment at the school. In our classrooms you will find little pitchers and bowls of spooning, pouring (liquid and dry pouring) activities, live plants to water, lacing, buttoning, bolts and nuts activity, lock and keys, folding, cutting activities, etc. These activities children see as play and care to cater to the Refinement of fine motor skills, Care of Self, Care of the environment, Grace and Courtesy, and independence of the child.
Grace and courtesy skills are an important part of our learning, for social cohesion, and emotional skills.

Education of the Senses

Children learn best through their senses,“what the hand touches, the mind remembers” Maria Montessori. Therefore this area is filled with activities filled with opportunities to refine the senses: sensory play and messy play. We have auditory activities, designed to refine the child’s auditory perception, one such activity is the sound cylinders.

Olfactory (smell) and Gustatory (taste) sense: The environment serves as the source for the child to exercise, sort, and refine these senses, these opportunities often arise during meal times, nature walks, baking or cooking, etc. It is important that even at home if such opportunities present themselves, we engage the child and make sure to provide correct terminology to help the child in expressing their findings. Sight: Visual discrimination teaches children to differentiate between Dimension, Chromatic (color), and, Shapes. It helps them tell things apart. Learning to differentiate helps children to categorize, seriate, organize, and sort according to the variations of color, dimension, or shapes.
To further develop and refine senses, we have Stereognostic activities ( that require a person to Curriculum Areas Home Curriculum Areas Home About us Services Curriculum Areas Con identify an object without looking), Baric (weight), and Thermal ( temperature)(practical activities include seasons) activities in the educations of the senses.

Literacy and Language Skill

Each time a child walks into our classroom is an opportunity to develop their communication skills and increase their vocabulary. Our environment offers and allows freedom of expression, socializing with peers and the adults within the environment. All other areas are preparation for language and literacy skills, refined fine motor skills for handwriting, auditory perception for letter sounds, visual discrimination for telling letters apart, etc. Early reading is given in the foundation of phonics, and every step in preparation for the next.

Numeracy & Early Math Activities

Montessori said that for a child to internalize a learning experience a concept should be taught from the basics, in its simplest form from concrete to abstract. Numeracy and maths activities are presented in a rigid form as each activity is preparation for the next. The children in our environment are exposed and or master, quantity and symbol recognition and matching, the decimal system, early addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Knowledge & Understanding of the world

This curriculum area encompasses a variety of subjects that are supplementary to the Montessori method broken down into five sub-areas, namely: Biology ( Zoology and Botany), Geography, Science, and History.
This is one exciting and flexible part of our classroom as activities can be modified to the likes and fascination of the children in the environment. From the study of the cosmos to burrowing animals, cars, robots, and so forth. It is also an area that fosters and brings realization of peace education, appreciation, respect, and tolerance for different cultures, religions, and celebrate our differences.

Gross Motor Play

Music and movement, free play, and organized play keep the children refining and growing their gross motor skills. Our classrooms also allow space and freedom for the child to move in between activities because younger children have an inert need to move and it is a need for their physical growth.

Creativity

Integrated into our daily environment to encourage children to express themselves is arts and crafts, music and movement, role play, and painting.

“What we see changes what we know. What we know changes what we see.” “Each time one prematurely teaches a child something he could have discovered himself, that child is kept from inventing it and consequently from understanding it completely.” “Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.” – Jean Piaget
