Montessori Environment

Montessori Approach is an approach developed by Dr. Maria Montessori to educate young children. She dedicated her entire life to develop and advocate popularly known as the Montessori Method. This renowned pedagogy is highly researched and followed in Montessori schools internationally. She opened her own school for young children and called it “Casa dei Bambini”.

Here the children are taught indivually and enjoy working at a pace and level suited to his/her needs. The child works with peers of varying ages (2.5 to 6 years) in the same environment, stimulating academic and social growth. The child’s interest and needs are keenly observed and lovingly responded to by a qualified Montessori Adult so that knowledge, independence, confidence and love of learning flow freely.

Milestones Montessori School is an initiative of  Pumpkin Patch. Our “House of children” represents a beautifully environment, designed to meet the needs of children. It is a joyous place to be in and caters to the child’s natural development. There is no limit to what your child can learn and do. The environment offers the child limitless opportunities & unique educational materials to realize his full potential. Our qualified Montessori adults carefully observe & evaluate each child’s process. The idea is to follow the child’s natural instincts and help children help themselves.

Curriculum

Montessori Method aims at holistic development of the child. The following areas of activity cultivate the child’s adaption and enhance his ability to express and think.

Practical Life Exercises instil care for self, for others and for the environment. Though practical life exercises the child gains OCCI - Order, Concentration, Co-ordination, Independence and willingness to learn more while completing purpose daily activities.

Sensorial Material serves as a tool of development. Children build cognitive skills and learn to order and classify impressions by touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, listening and exploring the physical properties of their environment. The child’s senses are enhanced and sharpened through exposure to sensorial material.

Language is vital to human development. The Montessori environment is rich in oral opportunities, allowing the child to experience conversation, stories and poetry. The materials enable the child to link sound and symbol effortlessly, encouraging the development of written expression and reading skills. To further reading development children are also exposed to the study of grammar.

Arithmetic activities motivate children to learn and understand the concepts of math by manipulating concrete materials. This gives them a solid understanding of basic mathematical principles, prepares them for abstract reasoning and helps to develop problem solving capacities.

Geometry, Biology, Botany, Zoology, History are presented as extensions of sensorial activities. Children learn about people and cultures of different countries, feeling connected to the global human family. Lesson and experiences with nature inspire a reverence.
