3 years cycle
Your child will stay in the Children's House for 3 years.
Montessori is a continuum of education that allows your child to build upon
his/her experiences each year. In the first year, the days will be
filled with activities centred around “Practical Life”. Here, he learns
to sweep the floor, bake bread, polish silver and clean the leaves of
plants. He experiments with sensorial materials that educate his
visual, auditory and tactile senses. He plays vocabulary sound games
and sings and dances when children gather for group activities.
As the child continues, she is introduced to sounds and symbols which
lay the groundwork for reading and writing in the future. She is
introduced to numbers and the decimal system – with the most amazing
concrete materials to show her the way. She learns about land and water
forms, geometric figures, the political countries of the world; she
learns about the parts of plants and animals and about music and art
– at her own pace, in her own time.
It is during his third year, that everything comes to fruition for your
child. Reading, writing and mathematical understanding blossom from the
many seeds that were planted in the previous two years. The child
leaves the program with a strong set of academic skills; but, far more
importantly, with the attitude that learning is fun, exciting and boundless.
