EARLY CHILDHOOD

EARLY CHILDHOOD MONTESSORI

The age span of 3 to 6 roughly corresponds to one of the child’s natural stages of development. As the child works in a group of children of various ages, abilities, cultures, and interests, the child acquires emotional growth, as well as intellectual progress. MSA provides an environment in which the child may freely develop an inquisitive mind and the social attitudes necessary for a wholesome life. Each child follows their individual program and progresses at their own pace.

 

In the hall day program (9:00AM to 12:00PM) children from 3 years of age to 5 work together during the morning session .  In the full day program (9am to 3pm) the students ages 5 to 6 remain in the same classroom with their teacher for a longer working period.  We call it The Leadership Group.  While it is the equivalent of the kindergarten class, those students are given the opportunity to reach fruition.  It is the year when everything they learned during the first 2 years comes to completion.  It is the year of Fulfillment. Children 5 years of age through 6 years of age remain in the classroom and work until 3pm.  This is the kindergarten year when the child’s acquired knowledge comes into full fruition.

 

The instructional materials and equipment provide the core of the child’s learning program. The materials are scientifically designed aids, placed on low shelves, within easy reach. The child is encouraged to use the materials according to his interests.

 

Emphasis on practical life and sensorial exercises is an integral activity, designed to take advantage of the young child’s unique talent to develop his own capabilities. The child learns to respect the feelings and ideas of others, sharing in work and play.

 

Special materials enable children to learn to care for themselves. Lessons in courtesy give them confidence to deal with everyday situations. Through its enriched curriculum – language, mathematics, science, history, geography, music, and art – the school provides “a preparation for life.”
