“Free the child’s potential and you will transform him into the world”
Our ethos is also inspired by Maria Montessori’s approach which promotes children’s freedom with responsibility and independence.
Practical Life activities:
Practical life activities are also referred to as the heart of Montessori education. These activities are an increasingly challenging series of motor tasks involving practical real-life goals, such as cleaning a table, washing a plate, caring for plants.In addition to helping children master everyday tasks, the aim of practical life activities is to develop a child’s:
- Body control and coordination of movement
- Sense of order
In the Kindergarten, we use household objects for all of the practical life activities, as this gives the children a sense of connection, comfort and belonging to see familiar objects from home in an unfamiliar environment.
These materials are specifically designed to help children develop skills for discrimination, order, and to broaden and refine the five senses: seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling. They help children clarify, classify, and understand the world around them.
