Montessori Curriculum

Children can study Practical Life, Sensorial, Mathematics, Language, and Culture as part of the Montessori Curriculum. A group of Montessori items that teach a specific major knowledge topic or ability make up each learning area. Children grasp the essential competencies in each subject area and gain a fundamental comprehension of each material via repetition and practise.

Note: Montessori curriculum full day program 7:30 am to 6 pm and montessori cycle 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

How Does the Montessori Curriculum Work?

The Montessori curriculum is based on the educational approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The Montessori curriculum aims to develop a child’s independence, self-confidence, and love for learning through a hands-on, individualised approach. It fosters a supportive and respectful learning environment that nurtures the whole child – academically, socially, emotionally, and physically.

Here are some key aspects of how the Montessori curriculum works

Prepared Environment

Montessori classrooms are carefully prepared to meet the developmental needs of children. They are filled with age-appropriate materials and furniture that encourage independent exploration and learning.

Mixed-Age Classes

Montessori classrooms typically have mixed-age groups, allowing younger children to learn from older peers and older children to reinforce their knowledge by helping younger peers.

Individualised Learning

Montessori education emphasises individualised learning. Each child is encouraged to progress at their own pace and choose activities that match their interests and developmental stage.

Hands-on Materials

Montessori materials are designed to be self-correcting and encourage hands-on learning. They are specifically designed to promote exploration, problem-solving, and the development of fine motor skills.

Freedom Within Limits

Montessori education offers children freedom within limits. While they have the freedom to choose their activities, they also learn to respect the rules and routines of the classroom and the needs of their peers.

Practical Life Skills

Montessori education places a strong emphasis on practical life skills. Children are encouraged to engage in everyday tasks such as pouring, cleaning, and dressing, which promotes independence and self-care.

Sensorial Exploration

Montessori materials are designed to stimulate the senses and help children understand abstract concepts through concrete experiences. Activities focusing on touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing are incorporated into the curriculum.

Montessori Trained Educators

Montessori educators undergo specialised training to understand child development and implement the Montessori philosophy effectively. They act as guides, observing and supporting the child’s individual growth and development.
