The Children's House is designed and laid out to support children's choices while learning. There are dedicated areas crafted for each segment of the Montessori curriculum, like Language, Math, Sensorial, Practical Life, and Culture. These spaces house shelves full of invitation materials that vary in complexity and abstraction. Montessori education embraces a 3-year cycle with mixed age groupings where older peers mentor the younger ones; it is tailored to an individual's ability rather than their age. Instructors provide guidance so that kids may experience the world through exploration with their senses, taking as much time as needed to establish a solid foundation for further study.
By carrying out practical life exercises, children can gain order, coordination, concentration and independence. These tasks provide the child with a sense of freedom from physical and mental dependence as they practice their fine and gross motor control. Additionally, they learn to establish order through activities that involve following a sequence; for example, by completing activities from left to right or top to bottom. Doing so prepares them for reading and writing.
Children learn to organize, categorize and comprehend their world through the use of their senses, thus the purpose of sensorial work is to refine their senses. As well as providing the child with a basic understanding of mathematics, sensorial exercises also present every quality that can be perceived by the senses, such as size, shape, composition, texture, flavor, sound, weight, and temperature.
Math is a discipline which involves working with numbers and can help children to learn logical thinking, organisation and sequencing. It introduces them to mathematical ideas and processes via tangible objects. Doing the same work repeatedly gives them opportunity to practice reasoning and problem solving; indeed, one observation often seen in this environment is the use of golden beads to build the decimal system, leading to being able to do the basic operations: adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. The connection between children's experience of such activities with material things and their understanding of abstract concepts should be kept in mind.
Our guides demonstrate precise language during everyday activities with the child, encouraging conversations. The environment provides rich opportunities for oral language where the child is listened to and talked to with respect. Sandpaper letters and movable alphabets help the child learn to link sounds and letters, which leads to writing and reading.
Montessori emphasizes cultural studies. Children develop an attitude of respect and appreciation for diversity by learning about the world, the people and cultures of other countries. The goal is to introduce facts about life, the earth, and the universe, immersing them as much as possible in nature.
