“Free the child’s potential, and you will transform him into the world.” – Maria Montessori
The Preschool Curriculum is grounded in the Montessori Method and consists of 8 strands, as shown below.
Real life experiences that build the foundation of future academic skills through purposeful activities, while developing independence, order, concentration, motor control and coordination, sense of responsibility, and social skills.
Oral language, pre-reading and pre-writing activities, enhancing vocabulary and exploring spoken and written language.
Sensorial activities develop and refine the five senses. Children become precise observers, leading to the abstraction of ideas, logical thinking and the ability to distinguish, categorize and relate new information to what they already know. The materials also serve to expand the child’s vocabulary in a very concrete way.
Introduction to numeration (symbols and quantities from 0 to 10), linear counting (symbols and quantities from 1 to 100), skip counting to 1000 (using bead chains), and the decimal system (units, tens, hundreds and thousands) through exchange and bank games.
Geography consists of materials related to the children's understanding of the world around them (planet, continents, countries, culture, etc). History is also developed through the children’s world, their daily routine, days, months, seasons, telling time, and birthdays (which are well celebrated).
Science activities allow the child to manipulate and experience materials that help them discover natural laws. Students learn science through hands-on experiences (sink and float, magnetic and non magnetic, gardening, etc), and classification activities (living and nonliving, plant-animal-mineral life cycles).
