What is Montessori?
Montessori is a pedological approach that is centered around creating an autonomous environment within limits and goal appropriate tasks that promotes cognitive, social, emotional, and psychomotor skills.
How do we use it in Kinder?
Although we are not a full Montessori school, we have adapted the teachings, and activities that are consistent with the Montessori way of teaching. This includes a component of “everyday life skills” which involves learning how to walk down stairs for 1 year olds, and serving themselves lunches at the age of 4.
What resources do we provide?
We have Montessori materials in each classroom that are age appropriate for our babies groups to our 4-5 year old groups, Each material has been picked out by trained Montessori instructors, and adapted to the respective language of the group.
