Montessori Curriculum

Montessori school programs emphasize the importance and connection of all living things, and the need for each person to find meaningful work and his or her own place in the world. Children learn about other cultures, animals, and plants in addition to reading, language, and mathematical skills.
Teachers — or “guides,”— take their lead from each child, whom they believe will learn at his or her own pace. Montessori programs encourage a child’s sense of independence: Children are always asked if they want to try a task, if they need help doing it, or if they feel they aren’t ready. Guides also like to involve parents closely in their children’s education — the teacher-student-parent bond is carefully cultivated.
Montessori curriculum focuses on five areas:-
Practical Life

• Children learn how to tie their shoes.
• Children learn how to put on their coats.
• Children learn how to prepare their own snacks and drinks.
• Children learn how to go to the bathroom without help
• Children learn how to clean up after themselves if they spill something

Sensory Awareness Education

• Exercises make sure children use all five senses to learn. For example, a child studying about fall gathers leaves and feels how brittle they are.
Language Arts

Children are encouraged to express themselves verbally and are taught to trace and recognize letters as a precursor to :
• Learning
• Reading
• Spelling
• Grammar
• Handwriting Skills
Mathematics And Geometry

Children learn about numbers through hands-on techniques using concrete materials, such as the golden beads that represent the hierarchy of the decimal system.
