Independent, child-led learning

The Montessori curriculum is a trusted methodology that has been supporting children’s academic development for over 100 years. It is founded on two main principles: a child’s natural curiosity to learn and a love of gaining new knowledge and skills. A Montessori daycare is a carefully prepared environment that offers exposure to a variety of materials and experiences. This hands-on approach allows the children to see, listen, and feel concepts they are learning. You’ll often notice a quiet hum in a Montessori classroom as children work independently or in small groups developing concentration, persistence, and discipline.

Key benefits of the Montessori curriculum

Individual learning

This provides opportunities for children to work independently, which builds confidence, focus and helps improve their sense of self.

Key elements

  • Practical life

    Practical life

    Practical life activities imitate everyday life and are easily adapted to each child’s unique developmental journey. Gaining real-world skills is a cornerstone of developing the whole child and supports children’s confidence outside of the classroom. These activities are often multi-sensory in nature as the Montessori philosophy is founded on the idea that children learn from everything they see, hear, touch, taste and feel. For that reason, children are presented with activities that will stimulate multiple senses for them to truly immerse themselves in their learning.

  • The Montessori classroom

    The Montessori classroom

    Each Montessori classroom is specifically designed to stimulate learning and cultivate a calm environment. Activities are set on low shelves that are easily seen and accessed by CV children. When the early childhood educator facilitates an area of learning, children are open to go to the appropriate shelf and choose which activity they would like to use. The Montessori activities themselves are colourful and inviting, easily manipulated and stimulate multi-sensory learning. This choice ensures that children feel like active participants in their educational journey.

  • Brain Gym

    Brain Gym

    Brain Gym is a proven system that is based on the physical components of learning. On the surface, these Montessori activities support balance, coordination, posture and get children moving throughout the day. However, it also has been proven to synchronize one’s system in a way that supports emotional health, focus and comprehension. Often as adults, we need to stand up and go for walk to better focus ourselves on the task at hand and it is similar for children. As with our nutrition program, we believe that a healthy body leads to a health mind.
