Montessori Nursery (1-3y)

Our program aims to provide a Montessori learning environment that stimulates inquisitiveness in young children. Our Montessori (0-3Y) trained teacher carefully plans the Montessori activities which support children in their development of fine and gross motor skills, independence, sense of order, confidence, cognitive skills, language, as well as their loving and respectful personality.

Montessori Nursery (12m-2.5Y): Wobbler (12m-18m) and Toddler (18m-2.5Y)

The Montessori method refers to “the absorbent mind” to describe the learning process of the child. Whatever the child is exposed to, whatever the child hears, sees and feels – these are all uploaded

directly into the brain. The child is forming a life-long map of how the world feels looks and works.

Our Montessori Nursery program for 12 months to 2.5 years aims to foster the development of basic trust and to assist in the normal development of the child’s personality. Basic trust develops in an environment where people respond appropriately to the child’s communication of needs to be loved, respected, and accepted. Young children learn through their senses.

They learn by watching and moving freely. Freedom to move is essential to the development of a child’s potential.

Learning, which leads to independence, occurs when children have opportunities to participate in the daily routines of self-care.

Our main goal with this age is to assist the child in expanding their natural abilities.

 

Little Casa (2-3.5Y)  

Usually, by the age of 2, the child is ready to attend school by himself, to explore his surrounding under the teacher’s professional guidance and graduate to the Little Casa Class.  Children at this stage are able work independently at their own pace and are emotionally more confident. Teachers and parents work together to support toilet-training at this age stage.

We build up their confidence in preparation for their foray into Casa Dei Bambini class. 

They will learn how to:

*  ease into new activities;
*  make decisions on what tasks they want to work on;
*  make new friends and socialize with peers and teachers;
*  take care of themselves;
*  explore through the senses

 

Phonics and early math concept are introduced and can be mastered through the use of Montessori tools. Art and crafts such as drawing, blocks, puzzles encourage aptitude for hand-eye coordination, aesthetics and problem-solving. Oral Language is well-developed through many language activities and storytelling. Music and movement activities continue to foster group participation, language development and physical growth.
