Montessori Areas of Learning

ACTIVITIES OF EVERYDAY LIVING  is especially designed for the younger children 2 to 4 years. These activities train the child for life, teaching him how to care for himself and the environment, showing how they are valued as cooperative members of the school community. The children learn how to dress himself by using dressing frames, to wash himself, develop pouring skills, polishing, sweeping, cooking, sewing, and many other useful everyday activities and skills.

THE SENSORIAL AREA focuses on refining the child’s senses. Every child learns from their environment through exploration with the senses. The children learn to gauge different heights, lengths, weights, colours, sounds smells, shapes and textures all of which are skills that prepare them indirectly for reading, writing and number work.

The carefully designed MATHEMATICS MATERIALS ensures that each child will have the opportunity to manipulate quantities and symbols in a practical way building a solid base for further learning in problem solving and mathematics.

READING AND LANGUAGE SKILLS. English is the teaching medium used within the school, although many children are bi or even tri-lingual. Children are taught to read through the phonic method, learning the sounds of the letters and then blending them together to make words.
