The Montessori philosophy is an educational philosophy for children, based on theories of child development developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator. Play Time Montessori Preschool CASA program is developed on this philosophy. During this age group, the child is concerned with self-construction and forming a basis for the human personality. His mantra is “Let Me Do It Myself!". The Children in CASA program direct their own learning, choosing among the sections of a well structured and stocked classroom,Our Montessori classrooms are superbly equipped with state-of-the-art materials for learning supported by Montessori trained Educators. The Educators/Directress introduce children to materials and when they have mastered the concept, they are introduced to new activities of increasing challenge. The “prepared environment” is carefully planned so that the “materials for development” are scientifically arranged and the child can spontaneously explore and progress at his or her own individual pace. The five ares of classroom include Practical Life (fine and gross motor skills), Sensorial (senses and brain), Language, Mathematics, and Science and Culture (world studies.).
The goal is to support children’s natural academic, social, and emotional development as we prepare them to be self-aware and emphatic young individuals.
The goal of these activities is not only to help children build self-confidence in their working abilities, but to expose the children to fundamental work that builds up their concentration span with activities they will encounter through adulthood.
Sensorial activities develop the child’s senses of perception and discrimination for exploring and noticing small differences in patterns as well as fine motor function development in the hands.
The goal of these activities will increase perception for distinguishing different qualities and patterns.
Language activities include learning the shapes and sounds of letters, practicing fine motor skills by writing, vocabulary development, matching words and pictures, reading development with word lists, practicing parts of grammar (nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.), creating sentences and reading silently.
The Math area of the Montessori classroom encompasses the use of concrete materials for the recognition of numbers and the recognition of quantity as well. Mathematics activities are divided into six categories that include: counting and the decimal system, memory work, concrete abstraction, arithmetic tables and geometry.
science & CULTURE
Cultural subjects include: Geography, Science, Botany, Zoology, and Art & Music. Studying these subjects provide children an opportunity to explore their curiosity of different and worldly ideas.
Culture activities facilitate children's cognitive, social and emotional development in a constructive way.
