The Montessori curriculum for the young child encompasses the whole child. A child is introduced to materials and lessons when he is developmentally ready to receive them. The classroom offers a variety of appealing work which will engage the active learner in his quest to understand the world around him.There are four central areas in a prepared Montessori Environment:
Practical Life: This area allows the child to begin to hone her powers of concentration, order, coordination of movement, and independence. The materials found in this area foster the mastering of every day skills such as pouring, sweeping, washing, dressing oneself and lessons in courtesy.
Sensorial: The materials found in this area develop the young childs understanding of perceptual qualities through exploration with Montessori materials. These materials offer the child the opportunity to concretely discover conceptual qualities such as one-to-one correspondence, gradation, and temporal relations. Many of these materials provide a foundation for future math work.
Language: The Language curriculum allows the child to associate phonetic sounds to written symbols. The child will be introduced to word composition, the mechanics of writing, and later reading.
Mathematics: The materials found in the Montessori Math area allow a child to concretely explore abstract concepts and operations. The young child will be introduced to numerals and their associated quantities, liner counting, decimal system (exploration of place value), and mathematical operations. The child will also be exposed to fractions, time, and currency.
