COURSE CONCEPTS

"The education of even a small child therefore does not aim in preparing him for school but for life." – Maria Montessori.

OUR COURSE AND MONTESSORI EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMES ARE BASED ON SELF-DIRECTED ACTIVITY , HANDS-ON-LEARNING AND COLLABORATIVE PLAY.

The role of a Montessori teacher is that of an observer whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as the child develops. The teacher’s first objective is to prepare and organize the learning environment to meet the needs and interests of the children as well as promote independence. The focus is on the children. Through careful observation and planning, WE teachers remain constantly alert to the direction each child is heading to and actively work to help them succeed.

With students at each level, the teacher is more active, demonstrating the use of materials and presenting activities based on assessment of the child’s requirements. Children at all levels of Montessori education are actively engaged by the teacher in the learning process which enhances critical thinking skills.

PRACTICAL LIFE: (EPL)

The purpose and aim of Practical Life is to help the child gain control in the coordination of his/her movement, and help the child to gain independence and adapt to society. It is therefore important to "Teach teaching, not correcting". Practical Life Exercises also aid the growth and development of the child’s intellect and concentration and will in turn help the child develop an orderly way of thinking.

Sensorial:

The purpose and aim of Sensorial work is for the child to acquire clear, conscious, information and to be able to then make classifications in their environment. Sensorial exercises enhances every quality that can be perceived by the senses such as size, shape, composition, texture, loudness or softness, matching, weight, temperature, etc.

LANGUAGE:

When the child arrives in the Montessori classroom, the child has fully absorbed his culture's language. Learning of language is not done through subjects as in a normal classroom, here the child is learning at his own rhythm. The MONTESSORI materials plays an important role in aiding the child develop the powers of communication and expression, organization and classification, and the development of thought. The Language curriculum includes pre-reading visual exemplars in the form of cards that helps every child understand other individuals, express personal thoughts and opinions as well as demonstrate growth in other curricular areas.

MATHEMATICS:

Math is all around the young child from day one. Little children are naturally attracted to the science of numbers. Mathematics, like language, is the product of the human intellect. It undergirds the effort of the human to understand the world in which the child lives. The Math curriculum includes a variety of counting, number recognition as well as symbol and quantity matching exercises. Children progress to understand mathematical concepts using simple materials and eventually advancing towards more complex manipulatives that expand their exploration of shape, size, symbol, and quantity.

CULTURAL STUDIES:

Montessori saw that young children were interested in exploring the environment in increasingly complex ways. The Cultural area of the Montessori classroom covers a variety of subjects. Geography, Science, Botany, Zoology and History. Students are exposed to rhythm, songs, dance and movement. Every child participates in various art projects that reflect classroom themes, cultural celebrations and festive holidays.

EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME

MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE

The uniqueness about our Montessori is that we have designed our curriculum and course based on Dr. Howard Gardner, a psychologist and professor of neuroscience from Harvard University, theory of Multiple Intelligence (MI). He refers Intelligence is not about what we know but how we learn. It reflects our different ways of thinking, solving problems and learning.

In an MI view, everyone has all the intelligences; it’s just that each child has his/her own unique MI profile.

Bloom’s Taxonomy

Blooms’s Taxonomy is one of those terms that play a vital role for us in designing our curriculum and an important tool used by us in our day-to-day working and interactions with the child.

It is a central concept which works in conjunction with learning activities to help every child expand his/her critical thinking skills. Critical thinking skills allows a child to think independently,solve problems,evaluate alternatives and reflect on their own beliefs.

This provides learning levels to increase higher order thinking skills for children of all ages. It is all about – Remembering , Understanding , Applying , Analyzing , Evaluating and Creating.

Theme Based Approach

Thematic approach is a way of teaching and learning, whereby many areas of the curriculum are connected together and integrated within a theme. Using themes while working with young children has been popular in recent times. John Dewey, an American philosopher , psychologist and educational reformer first proposed that curriculum should reflect real-life experiences.

"FREE THE CHILD’S POTENTIAL, AND YOU WILL TRANSFORM HIM INTO THE WORLD." – Maria Montessori.

DAY CARE (AFTER SCHOOL CARE)

Childhood is not a race to see how quickly a child can read, write and count. Childhood is a small window of time to learn and develop at the pace which is right of each child
