Children have a natural impulse to move and explore, which shows curiosity. Exploring without disturbing the order in the classroom shows self-control and discipline. I will guide your child to learn about the full cycle of Montessori activities in an orderly prepared environment; and over time, develop an understanding of sequence and order while fostering self-discipline, independence, and freedom.
I introduce each individual child to the material at the right moment based on their needs. Being able to determine the right moment comes through observation of the child. Through observation, I can decipher the individual needs of the children, and respond to them accordingly.
Early in the year a child is encouraged to work with activities in “Practical Life” to develop independence, confidence, coordination and concentration, and activities in “Sensorial” area to refine the sensory perceptions of touch, sound, sight, hearing etc. Once the child becomes confident in these areas, the lessons from sensorial area are applied to development of mathematical and language concepts. The children by the end of the year will be sound conscious (pre-reading), write their name, identify/count numbers 1-20 and will have the prerequisite skills to move up to the Pre-K Montessori classroom.
