Montessori believed that all learning begins in the senses and as a result she developed materials that were colorful and enticing meant to be touched and manipulated. Most were designed so that children could work with and master them on their own.
Two typical areas in our classrooms are the Sensorial and Practical Life areas. The Sensorial area contains beautiful materials that in order to be understood and appreciated must be explored using the five senses.
In the Practical Life area are activities that help children master a variety of important skills. It is in this area for example that they would learn how to use a screwdriver button a sweater or pour a cup of juice.
An array of inviting Art materials are also available to our children as are materials for Math Language Science and Geography.Within this structure children choose their own activities. Closely attuned to the needs and abilities of each child teachers can then offer appropriate materials make suggestions when necessary or step back to encourage independence. Our mixed-age classrooms provide a special richness of interaction for children ages 2.9 to 5 years.
This mixture of ages allows children to have a variety of classmates who can match them emotionally and developmentally while stimulating them educationally.
