Social emotional skills development Freedom and curiosity are encouraged within safe and supportive limits. It is in this program that the naturally curious toddler begins to build the foundations for a lifelong love of learning.
Math skills development The Montessori math materials are among the most powerful educational techniques in the world. They provide manipulation of beads, chains, counters, rods, and cards. Children explore and discover math principles and concepts as they prepare to add, subtract, multiply, and divide. From sandpaper numbers to the dynamic lessons of the functions of math, Montessori students gain extraordinary mathematical skills as they grasp understanding of number concepts.
Speech development We begin introducing Montessori concepts at this early age. The use of mats with individual activities creates a sense of order. Returning materials to the proper place on the shelves is a long-term goal that is encouraged early in the year. According to our Montessori classroom design, materials are placed on open shelves around the room.
Reading skills development The Montessori Method is one of the only educational methods that encourages pre-writing and pre-reading. Readiness for writing begins with Practical Life and continues through with tracing metal insets. Letter formation is introduced once the child can hold a pencil properly and shows an interest in writing.The Moveable Alphabet provides a means for children to create their own words.
