The Curriculum

The direct aim of a Montessori curriculum is to develop order, concentration, coordination and independence in a child. We achieve this through different curriculum areas:

Practical Life – Large and fine motor development. Simple, sequential exercises that teach life skills leading to cognitive development and social acceptance.

 

Sensorial – Isolating and enhancing the senses to better understand the world of colors, shapes and sounds.

 

Language Arts – Phonetically grouped family of sounds that develops vocabulary, reading, writing and strong communication skills.

 

Mathematics –Hands-on manipulative math exercises based on the concept of concrete to abstract.

 

Cultural – History, Geography, Zoology, Botany, Anatomy.  Appreciation of cultural diversity.
