Our Method

Montessori Education and Play-based blend

A unique blended approach to the Montessori method with play-based method aimed to promote creativity through self-directed and hands-on learning.         Maria Montessori believed children are born with the innate ability to absorb all aspects of its surroundings and environment without conscious effort called “the absorbent mind”. The teacher’s role is to guide the children through their process of self-construct and achieve their full potential. The following areas of learning aim to cultivate and develop the whole child using hands-on experiences in the Montessori classroom:

Practical Life

In the Practical Life area, the exercises and activities help children develop coordination, concentration, self-confidence as well as life skills. While children observe and make connections between everyday life and the activities in this area, they develop a sense of care towards themselves, others and the environment. Many of the exercises develop children’s muscular coordination and encourage order and independence. Children learn to explore and work at their own pace and at their own level in a purposeful way.

Sensorial

Maria Montessori believed that children study their environment from birth using their senses as “sensorial explorers”. In a Montessori classroom, the teachers help the children to organize, classify and make sense of their environment through sensorial materials and activities. By refining the children’s senses through their own experiences, they begin to organize their intelligence and adapt to their environment.

Mathematics

Mathematics is an abstract concept that is all around us. Children are naturally drawn to the science of numbers, patterns and sequences. Montessori uses the manipulation of concrete materials to help children develop their ability to count, compute and build numerical connections. With practice, children build a solid foundation of basic mathematical principles that sets the premise for abstract thinking and problem-solving capabilities.

Language and Literacy

Language development begins from birth. In a Montessori classroom, children are further exposed to language through conversing with their teachers and peers as well as listening to oral stories and reading literature. In the Montessori curriculum, writing is introduced before reading and the fine-motor ability to hold writing instruments properly is indirectly practiced in the Sensorial and Practical Life areas. The role of the teacher is to guide the children through each progressive step and develop the powers of though, expression and communication.

Culture

Cultural lessons and exposures in the classroom enable children to enrich their understanding of the world. Each content rich lesson in geography, zoology, botany, science, music and art all contribute to building the foundation of a responsible and respectable global citizen. Children are encouraged to be curious and practice skills in observation, questioning and reasoning. These cultural experiences enable children’s cognitive, social and emotional development in relatable and meaningful way.
