The Montessori Classroom
Customized, for every child The Montessori classroom is a reflection of a child’s world, specifically equipped to meet their size, interests and learning needs. Our educational daycare program is tailored for children ages 2 ½ to 6. The classroom is designed to maximize their freedom within prescribed limits, in an organized environment that offers a variety of appealing exercises and activities. At a Montessori daycare, there are always a plethora of on-going activities to choose from. Learning from objects and materials requires physical movement such as walking, pulling, carrying, pouring, etc. Children work at tables or on small carpets on the floor where they are naturally more comfortable.
Children are encouraged to learn through discovery, action and touch rather than through lengthy verbal instruction, which instills greater satisfaction. For example, more than just a number written down on a piece of paper, a mathematical unit is something a child can hold in his or her hand. Similarly, a verb can actually be executed, rather than just understood ‘theoretically’ through workbook text.
