A child-centered and holistic curriculum for nursery
As children progress from Montessori Playgroup to Montessori Junior, you can see a marked improvement in their expressive language and coordination. Pre-schoolers need close guidance in positive communication and behaviour. Use of polite language and courteous behaviour are focus areas in daily lessons – these are essential in helping the child better manage their emotions, effectively communicate and socialise.
Children are inquisitive and imaginative and they express their creativity in form of illustrations that are colourful and detailed. Through our attractive writing programme, children are encouraged to learn more about penmanship and vocabulary.
As the year progresses, they begin to enjoy reading, discuss stories with friends and our teachers introduce a special phonics programme to help them with better pronunciation.
The Montessori approach to nursery learning
In the Montessori approach each programme builds on the one before it, providing a rich learning environment through challenges appropriate to both age and skill levels. Language, mathematics, spatial learning, self-discovery, music, and art are all incorporated into our approach.
In the Montessori nursery environment, the classroom is a “living room” for children. Children choose their activities from open shelves with self-correcting materials and work in distinct work areas – on tables, on rugs or on the floor. The curriculum focus on 5 domains which enhance the development of task organization and cognitive order through care of self, care of the environment, exercises of grace and courtesy, and refinement of physical movement and coordination.
Branches offering this programme:
- Ara Damansara
- Jaya One
- Mont Kiara
The number work learning materials help in inculcating an interested in various mathematical concepts from counting and matching to four operations and decimals.
The Montessori approach recognises the deep connection between nature and a child’s development. Hence, experiencing the natural environment is an essential part of the curriculum.
Children are also involved in various cultural activities and projects that help the child discover more about themselves and understand the world in a better way. Music, art and craft form an integral part of these activities.
Real materials such as bowls, spoons, and trays are included to help the child imitate physical tasks. The home-like activities of spooning, pouring, carrying and many more are incorporated to enhance the child’s concentration, develop coordination and movement and above all foster independence.
The sensory materials are designed for the multi-sensory development of the child which includes refining the child’s senses such as tactile, auditory, visual, chromatic, gustatory and more.
The language materials have been specially designed to help the child get a hold of the writing instrument and form the various letters easily. Children learn how to identify the phonetic sounds and use the technique to gradually move from simple words to complex sentences.
